PREFACE 

I  HE  College  feel   that  an  apology  ia   due   to   the   subscribers  to   the 

Biographical  Register  for  the  delay  in  the  issue  of  the  second  volume. 

This  delay  is  mainly  due  to  the  extension  of  the  work  beyond  the  limits 

originally  proposed.     Dr  Peile  had  intended  to  bring  the  Register  to  a  close 

at  about  the  year  1870,  but  in  view  of  the  publication  of  the  Annual  List  of 

^    living  Members  of  the  College,  past  and  present,  with  their  addresses,  which 

<^\    appeared  for  the  first  time  at  the  Quatercentenary  Celebration  in  1905,  it 

^      was  thought  advisable  to  continue  the  work  down  to  that  year  :  so  that  the 

j       Biographical   Register  and    the   Annual   Lists  together  might    constitute  a 

complete  roll  of  all  the  known  Members  of  the  College  from  the  foundation 

of  "  God's   House "  to  the  present  day.     Opportunity  has  been  taken  to 

correct  certain    inaccuracies  which  had  occurred  in  Dr  Peile's   manuscript 

of  the  first  volume,  and  an  index  has  been  prepared  by  Mr  J.  A.  Venn  to 

the  entire  work,  which  contains  some  ten  thousand  five  hundred  entries. 

That  the  completion  of  the  work  was  at  all  possible  is  due  in  the  first 
place  to  Mr  J.  A.  Venn,  of  Trinity  College,  who,  at  the  request  of  the  College, 
kindly  undertook  to  complete  the  second  volume  and  see  it  through  the 
press  :  and  secondly  to  the  wide  knowledge  which  Mr  Tithecott,  our  college 
butler,  possesses  of  the  careers  of  old  Members  of  the  College.  Mr  J.  A.  Venn 
has  most  whole-heartedly  devoted  himself  to  this  work  for  the  last  two 
years,  and  the  authorities  of  the  College  feel  they  owe  him  deep  thanks. 
Mr  Tithecott's  zeal  for  noticing  and  recording  any  news  connected  with  the 
College  has  been  of  the  greatest  use  to  Mr  Venn.  But  there  have  been  other 
helpers.  Dr  Venn,  whose  Biographical  Register  of  Gonville  and  Gains  College 
was  the  model  upon  which  Dr  Peile  based  his  work,  has  placed  his  great 


vi  PREFACE 

experience  at  the  disposal  of  his  son.  Mr  G.  B.  Routledge,  the  Rev.  Canon 
Foster,  F.S.A.,  and  the  Rev.  J.  E.  Auden,  M.A.,  have  kindly  supplied  many 
facts  not  previously  known.  We  also  owe  our  thanks  to  Mrs  Baines  for 
communicating  a  pedigree  of  the  Baines  family,  whose  close  connexion  with 
the  College  dates  from  1571  to  the  present  day.  Finally,  we  thank  many 
Members  of  the  College  for  their  kindness  in  furnishing  information  about 
their  own  careers  or  those  of  their  friends.

BIOGRAPHICAL    EEGISTEE 

OF 

CHRIST'S    COLLEGE 


It  will  be  observed  that  between  1  July  1665  and  8  March  166j,  there  are 
only  three  entries.  The  cause  was  the  plague  wliich  was  prevalent  in  August : 
and  on  10  Oct.  the  exercises  in  the  Schools  were  discontinued  by  Grace  of  the 
Senate.  On  Dec.  8  the  Colleges  were  declared  by  the  V.C.  to  be  free  of 
infection  :  on  March  15  it  was  announced  that  no  one  had  died  of  plague  at 
Cambridge  for  six  weeks,  and  that  all  who  return  will  be  received.  (Cooper, 
Annals,  3.  517.)  But  it  will  have  been  seen  that  many  men  matriculated 
very  late.  The  reason  was  that  there  was  no  matriculation  between  July 
1665  and  30  March  1667.  In  the  spring  of  1666  work  recommenced.  Com- 
mencement seems  to  have  been  held  and  degrees  conferred.  But  the  plague  re- 
turned :  and  on  Aug.  3  Stourbridge  fair  was  prohibited :  the  Colleges  apparently 
dispersed  earlier  than  their  wont.  See  note  by  John  Covel,  praelector  for  the 
year,  under  Sam.  Fortrey  (page  8).

Heathcote,  Gilbert :  admitted  as  Hetlicot :  son  of  Michael :  boiii  at  Buxton. 
School :  Bakewell,  under  M'  Beardmore.  Admitted  pensioner  under  M'' 
Stanford  11  June  1666.     Age  18. 

B.A.  (Heathcott)  16!:^;  M.A.  1673.  Identified,  in  D.N.B.,  with  Sir 
Gilbert,  Sherifi"  and  Lord  Mayor  of  London,  knighted  1702,  one  of  the 
founders  of  the  Bank  of  England,  and  (in  1694)  elected  one  of  its  first 
Board  of  Directors:  M.P.  for  Helston  1714,  for  New  Lymington  1722,  for 
St  Germans  1727  :  baronet  173§:  who  died  in  London  1733,  aged  82,  and 
was  buried  at  Nornianton,  Ruts.,  which  he  had  bought  from  the  Mackworths. 
If  his  age  be  given  rightly,  he  was  born  in  1651.  The  age  does  not  exactly 
correspond  :  and  there  seems  to  be  no  doubt  that  this  Sir  Gilbert  was  eldest 
son  of  Gilbert  of  Chesterfield,  alderman  and  thrice  mayor. 

Another  Gilbert  was  admitted  here  [no  facts  about  him  given]  in  1681  : 
but  he  is  too  young. 

There  is  another  Gilbert  Heathcote  "M.A.  of  Christs"  (so  described  in 
Brady's  Records  of  Cork,  2.  115)  and  said  there  to  be  son  of  the  Parliamentary 
Captain,  Gilbert,  and  grandson  of  George  of  Brampton  who  was  brother  of 
Gilbert,  the  alderman  of  Chesterfield,  from  whom  the  knightly  family 
descended.  This  Irish  Gilbert  was  curate  of  Youghal  1683  :  Chancellor  of 
Cloyne,  1685-93,  when  he  was  deprived.  He  married  about  1680  Sarah, 
daughter  of  Sir  Ri.  Kennedy  of  Mount  Kennedy,  co.  Wicklow.  So  far, 
Brady  :  did  he  take  the  "M.A.  of  Christ's"  from  the  Graduati  Ca7it.  without 
further  enquiry  ?  or  is  he  wrong  about  the  parentage  and  does  he  assume  that 
Gilbert  the  Chancellor  of  Cloyne  was  a  son  of  the  familiar  Parliamentarian 
Gilbert  ?  If  so,  the  rest  of  his  account  may  be  correct.  The  Gilbert  of  1681 
is  too  young  to  be  the  husband  of  Sarah  Kennedy.

B.A.  16f«;  M.A.  1673,  incorporated,  Oxford,  1675.  On  5  April  1670 
the  King  recommended  John  Turner  to  be  elected  to  the  first  vacancy, 
whatever  county  it  be:  and  he  got  it.  He  was  elected  before  Mids.  1673, 
succeeding  Mich.  Stanford.  Ordained  priest,  London,  1673  Dec.  Was  prae- 
lector  for  the  large  year  1673-4,  and  a  careless  one  ;  but  he  wrote  good  Latin. 
His  last  payment  was  in  Mich^  1681,  and  he  left  the  College  considerably  in 
debt,  probably  not  (as  was  sometimes  the  case)  for  pupils,  of  whom  he  had 
none  after  1675  :  there  is  an  entry  in  the  Order-book  20  Feb.  168-1-.  "Agreed 
then  by  the  Master  and  Fellows  that  M"'  Turner  have  a  year  more  allowed 
toward  the  payment  of  his  £51  [or  1  .£50]  bond  which  if  he  does  not  pay  in 
that  time,  then  we  whose  names  are  here  subscribed  doe  promise  and  engage 
ourselves  joyntly  and  severally  to  pay  it  within  2  months  after  the  time 
expired,  counting  from  the  date  hereof":  this  is  signed  by  Tho.  Lynford, 
Tho.  Fairmedow,  Edw.  Finch  and  John  Isham  :  and  in  168|  M''  Lynford  paid 
£40  to  the  College.  From  the  preface  to  some  of  his  books,  it  would  seem 
that  he  was  settled  in  London  :  in  1684  he  describes  hiaiself  as  Hospitaller  of 
S'  Thomas,  Southwark,  and  in  1698  as  lecturer  of  Christ  Church,  London: 
possibly  he  was  rector  of  Postling,  Kent  2  Feb.  168|-,  presented  by  the 
Archbishop  :  possibly  vicar  of  Navestock,  Essex  3  June  1689-1700  and  later  :

Here  comes  a  note  by  John  Covel,  the  Praelector  :  who  says  that  in 
August  1665  the  University  went  into  exile.  The  cold  winter,  or  God's 
mercy,  repressed  the  plague.  But  in  the  spring  of  1666  the  alarm  again 
began:  the  University  again  fled:  among  the  rest  M''  Covel  "uno  vel  altero 
pupillorum  manipulo  stipatus."  In  consequence  the  two  pupils  (presumably 
one  "  manipulus  ")  who  follow  are  entered  in  a  wrong  place.

Bedfordshire  :  see  under  the  father  (vol.  i.  p.  375),  who  left  £5  a  year  to  the 
University  of  Cambridge  :  this  was  limited  by  the  son  to  what  was  probably 
his  own  College.  No  settlement  having  been  made  by  the  father's  executors, 
Major  Harvey  had  paid  £5  annually  till  1706  :  in  his  will  seven  years  later  he 
declared  his  grant  to  be  in  satisfaction  of  his  father's  intention.  His  executors 
in  1715  refused  to  make  a  settlement  or  to  pay  the  arrears  from  1706  :  but 
the  heirs  at-law  seem  to  have  been  complaisant,  and  a  decree  was  made  in 
Chancery  that  =£150  (£50  for  arrears)  should  be  paid  to  a  Master  in  Chancery 
and  by  him  invested  in  land.  Nine  acres  of  land  at  Stanningfield,  Suffolk 
were  purchased,  the  income  to  be  employed  by  the  College  according  to  Major 
Harvey's  will.

great  estate  of  late,  and  hath  built  a  sumptuous  new  house  near  the  church."

Jane,  daughter  of  Sir  Thomas  Jones,  Justice  of  the  King's  Bench,  a  man  who 
according  to  Macaulay  never  except  on  one  occasion  "  shrank  from  any

Charles  of  Wallow  Hall,  Bolland,  Yorks.  He  was  alive  in  1697.  A  Weddell

testimonial.  Admitted  at  Christ's  sizar  under  M''  Leigh  27  Feb.  l&S-i 
Age  21. 

B.A.  167|;  M.A.  1676.  Probably  vicar  of  Deane,  near  Bolton,  Lanes. 
4  Dec.  1672:  patron,  the  Crown:  Chowbent  is  some  miles  south  of  Deane. 
According  to  Croston-Baines  (3.  130)  he  did  not  renounce  the  Covenant,  and 
his  institution  did  not  take  place  till  22  Nov.  1673  :  and  he  was  twice  in- 
ducted, for  the  second  time  6  Dec.  1673.  He  appointed  a  Nonconformist  like 
himself  to  the  chapel  of  Horwich  whence  in  later  years  trouble  arose.  He 
died  1712.     See  Hallej',  Nonconformity  in  Lanes.,  2.  160. 

Sym[m],  John:  B.A.,  admitted  pensioner  under  M"^  Burnet  18  March  165g.  He 
was  B.A.  (Sidney)  1648,  and  brought  letters  testimonial.  A  Tho.  Symm 
(perhaps  by  error  for  John)  appears  M.A.  (Christ's)  1670,  in  Cat.  Graduatoruni, 
1659-1800.  One  John  Symm  (or  Symmes),  clerk,  was  rector  of  Goxhill  in 
Holdernessll  Feb.  166^^-1689:  and  being  chaplain  to  Christopher,  Duke  of 
Albemarle  had  license  from  Lambeth  21  March  165^  ("  having  given  testi- 
monials of  conformity  and  of  good  life,  and  been  examined  by  M''Tho.  Tomkins 
domestic  chaplain ")  to  hold  also  the  rectory  of  Langton  near  New  Malton, 
distant  20  miles:  instituted  29  March  1670.  Poulton's  statement  that  John 
Symm  vacated  Goxhill  by  death  is  wrong.  He  vacated  Langton  as  a  non-juror 
1690.  His  successor  and  son-in-law,  Tho.  Watson  (B.A.  Pet.  1685)  was 
instituted  June  14:  and  Mary  Watson  died  at  Langton  Nov.  1693.  John 
Symmes  was  living  in  1696.  His  wife  Ursula  was  buried  at  Goxhill  12  Sept. 
1668.  She  had  three  sons  at  a  birth,  who  all  died.  (Information  from  Rev. 
A.  Hippisley  Smith,  vicar  of  Langton.)

of  the  House  for  B.  A.  167|,  though  he  does  not  occur  in  the  Registry  list.  In 
the  College  B.A.  Commencement-book  there  ai-e  two  M"'  Nowells  B.A.  one

book,  but  is  in  the  Univ.  Registry  as  B.A.  :  the  fact  that  the  Commencement- 
book  has  two  names  proves  that  there  is  not  in  this  case  (as  often)  a  confusion 
of  Christian  names.  In  the  pedigree  of  Nowells  of  Capelside  (Whitaker, 
Whalley,  2.  113)  an  earlier  Will.  Nowell  occurs  as  son  of  Chris,  of  Capelside

1770]  is  that  they  inaugurated  a  new  species  of  literary  composition" — viz.

Wheeldon,  John :  [no  facts  given].  Admitted  sizar  under  M''  Smithson  12  April 
1672. 

Matric".  not  found.  One  Joh.  Wheledon  "  lit[eratus]  coll.  Christi  "  was 
ordained  deacon,  London,  1680  June:  and  is  probably  entered  by  error  as 
"John  Wheel  [sic]  lit.  Coll.  Christi,"  priest,  1682  June.  He  never  appears  in 
Study-rents  :  but  his  account  of  himself  seems  to  imply  some  residence  :  perhaps 
he  paid  nothing  as  being  M''  Smithson's  personal  servant.

Admitted  pensioner  under  M''  Andrewes  24  April  1672.     Age  16. 

Matric".  not  found.  The  father  was  a  Sir  Abraham  Reynardson  of  London 
(Le  Neve's  Knights)  knighted  5  July  1660:  unless  this  were  the  grand- 
father. Other  members  of  the  family  were  London  merchants  (Foster, 
Marriage  Licenses). 

Russell,  Edward :  son  of  Francis,  baronet :  born  at  Chipnam  [Chippenham],  Cambs. 
School :  Perse,  under  M"'  Griffith.  Admitted  pensioner  under  M''  Fairmedow

Dorothy,  eldest  daughter  of  the  second  Lord  Convv'ay,  whom  he  married  in 
1654  :  the  connexion  with  Christ's  is  doubtless  through  the  mother  or,  rather, 
her  sister  Anne,  Lady  Conwa}',  More's  friend.  Sir  George  served  with  dis- 
tinction during  the  Irish  Rebellion,  and  after  the  Restoration ;  when  he  built 
and  settled  down  at  Moira  and  was  very  influential  in  Ulster  till  his  death  in 
1684.  Edward,  the  son,  and  his  brother  John  both  died  before  their  father 
(1684),  who  was  succeeded  by  his  third  son,  Arthur,  educated  at  Dublin  (D.N.B. 
under  his  father).

(1645)  of  Ickwell,  Beds. :  last  of  the  Beds,  family  of  this  name  :  which  I  cannot 
connect  with  the  Yorkshire  branch,  also  largely  represented  here.  Admitted

Dalton,  Samuel :  son  of  John  :  born  at  Nottingham.  School :  private,  at  Mack-

Age  18. 

B.A.  1675.  Was  he  nephew  of  the  Ant.  Procter  (son  of  Anthony)  of 
Newcastle,  admitted  16541  It  is  impossible  to  distinguish  the  history  of  this 
man  from  that  of  Ant.  Proctor,  admitted  ne.xt  year  :  and  there  was  a  third 
(of  St  John's)  B.A.  1668.  Perhaps  curate  of  All  Saints,  Newcastle  1697-1703, 
at  latest  (Brand,  1.  392).  Probably  one  of  the  three  was  a  member  of 
Frankland's  Academy  at  Rathmell,  admitted  7  April  1670:  dead  before  1698. 
One  was  ordained  priest,  York,  16f^  March.  One  was  master  of  Kirkby

18  Nov.  1680:  and  died  before  Sept.  1704.  The  John  Roos  (M.A.)  who 
became  rector  of  Brant  Broughton,  Lines.  29  April  1689,  can  hardly  be  the 
same  :  but  I  cannot  find  another  with  whom  to  identify  him.

of  the  "  Gentlemen  Justices "  who  made  answer  to  the  interrogations  re- 
specting the  election  to  Parliament  in  1688.  His  answer  at  Skipton  14  Aug. 
was  "  I  shall  give  my  vote  for  such  persons  as  are  of  untainted  loyalty. 
I  always  lookt  upon  those  laws  which  punished  men  for  meer  conscience  to  be 
severe,  and  am  desirous  to  live  friendly  with  all  men."  To  this  answer  the

*Cudworth,  John :  son  of  Ralph  :  born  in  Cambridge.  School :  Stortford,  under 
M'^  [Jer.]  Cudworth.  Admitted  pensioner  under  M''  Andrewes  24  Dec.  1672. 
Age  16. 

B.A.  167|- ;  M.A.  1680.  Son  of  the  Master  by  his  wife  Damaris  Andrewes: 
his  tutor  was  his  half-brother.  Elected  Fellow  before  Xmas  1678  succeeding 
Tho.  Burnet.  Ordained  deacon  and  priest,  Lincoln,  (at  Buckden)  1.5  July  1684. 
Was  Greek  lecturer  1687  and  1688,  and  was  at  least  occasionally  resident :  he 
had  one  pupil  in  1680  and  one  in  1692  :  but  he  probably  sat  lightly  on  the 
College.  Senior  Dean  1690.  His  father  left  him  copyhold  lands  in  Suffolk 
which  he  enjoyed  from  1688.  His  fellowship  was  declared  void  27  Jan.  169^ 
"by  reason  of  his  having  an  estate,"  i.e.  freehold  lands  at  Southwold,  Beding- 
tield,  Reddington  and  Allington,  I  presume  after  his  mother's  death.  He 
resided  at  Southwold,  where  he  spent  his  time  bemoaning  his  lot  and  com- 
plaining of  his  relatives — other  Cudworths.  He  died  9  Sept.  1726,  leaving  to 
his  nephew  Francis  Cudworth  Masham,  an  estate  of  £500  a  year.  From 
information  received  from  J.  Cudworth  Whitebrook,  Esq.,  I  gather  that  toward 
the  end  of  his  life  he  was  of  doubtful  sanity.

Halifax  1  Aug.  1686.  Also  a  Doctor  Jonathan  Maude  of  Halifax  died  in 
1684  (Hunter,  F.M.G.  625):  he  had  a  son  John  who  entered  Oxford  1670: 
and  he  may  have  sent  another  (this  Jonathan)  to  Cambridge.

Burke.  The  father  was  a  Puritan,  who  accepted  the  Parliamentary  conditions 
and  was  appointed  vicar  of  Broad  winsor  :  he  was  ejected  in  1661.  A  son, 
Azariah,  joined  the  Monmouth  rebellion,  was  ransomed  from  personal  servi- 
tude, went  to  Nevis  and  became  a  successful  sugar  planter  there.  John

Matric".  not  found.  Perhaps  uncle  of  Edward  and  Martin  Hall  admitted 
1695^:  they  were  of  Apsley  Guise,  Beds.  Appears  as  M''  Hall,  i.e.  a  fellow- 
commoner,  before  Lady  Day  1675  :  when  he  ceased  to  reside.

Matric".  not  found.  Resided  till  about  June  1676.  Admitted  at  the 
Inner  Temple  3  Oct.  1676 — unless  he  be  the  man  of  the  same  name  admitted 
there  4  Dec.  1673 — this  one  was  of  St  Martin  in  the  Fields.  One  of  these  I 
take  to  be  the  Ri.  Wynn  who  was  Serjeant-at-law  1710,  and  M.P.  for  Boston 
1708-22  :  possibly  he  was  also  eldest  son  of  Ri.  Wynne,  of  Guisborough, 
Yorks.  who  died  1653  and  left  to  his  eldest  son  Richard  £700  either  at  the 
age  of  25,  or  when  he  shall  have  served  his  ajjprenticeship  and  be  made  a

Sheldwick,  near  Faversham,  Kent,  1703-14  :  rector  of  Fordwich,  Canterbury, 
1714  {Arch.  Cant.  18.  300).

B.A.  1674'  ;  M.A.  1681.  The  father,  I  presume,  was  the  Ben.  Brunning, 
Fellow  of  Jesus,  who  was  rector  of  Great  Waldingfield,  Sutiblk  (JVorir.  Jieg''.), 
and  ejected  from  Ipswich  in  1662  (Calamy-Palmer,  2.  428).     Benjamin,  the

which  he  ceded  before  6  March  1685.  After  this  he  does  not  reappear  in  the 
Lincoln  diocese.  I  suppose  that  it  was  the  father  who  was  buried  in  Ipswich 
parish  church,  with  his  wife  and  daughter,  in  1688  (Clarke,  Ipsivich,  305).

Cudworth,  Charles: 

First  found  in  the  Lambeth  Register  30  July  1681  where  he  describes  him- 
self as  M.A.  of  Christ's  College,  [aged]  over  24  years,  and  as  being  "by  the 
locall  statutes  of  the  College  obliged  to  be  in  full  Orders,  petitions  his  Grace 
for  his  licence  or  faculty  whereby  he  may  be  eaabled  to  receive  the  Holy 
Orders  of  Deacon  and  Priest  at  one  and  the  same  time  from  any  Bishop." 
The  petition  was  granted.  There  is  no  record  of  any  Cha.  Cudworth  as  M.A., 
or  of  Christ's,  still  less  as  a  Fellow,  who  alone  could  be  bound  in  this  matter 
by  the  statutes.  The  simplest  explanation  is  that  this  Cha.  Cudworth  made 
a  false  representation.  He  may  be  a  son  of  the  Master  and  admitted  between 
Mich.  1677  and  Mich.  1678  for  which  time  the  Adm.  Book  is  blank  :  but  he 
never  graduated.  If  he  was  not  ordained,  he  cannot  be  the  S(m  of  D''  Cud- 
worth, of  immoral  life,  who  applied  (as  recorded  by  Bishop  Sherlock)  for 
a  prebend  of  Westminster,  and  was  refused.  But  he  is  probably  the  Cha. 
Cudworth  who  appears  in  India  in  1683.  This  is  his  record.  "Factory

168| :  M''  Cha.  Cudworth  was  married  to  the  widow  M''^  Mary  Prickman, 
daughter  of  M''  Cole  deceased,  and  formerly  wife  to  M''  Jonathan  Prickman, 
second  of  Maulda  :  the  marriage  was  solemnised  by  M''  Joh.  Hayes  after  the 
manner  of  the  Church  of  England.  (Undated,  but  probably  12  Feb.)  Diary 
for  March  168-^  :  Wedne.sday  19  :  M"'  Cha.  Cudworth,  3rd  of  Council,  departed 
this  life  last  night  about  midnight,  having  been  a  long  time  sick  of  a  flux." 
A  M'^  John  Haynes  (?)  married  his  widow  (J.  C.  W.).  Presumably  this 
Charles  is  the  brother  of  Damaris,  Lady  Masham,  Ralph's  daughter,  of  whom 


50  CHRIST'S   COLLEGE 

John  Locke  heard  at  Oates,  while  living  there  with  Lady  Masham  and  to 
whom  he  wrote  27  April  1683  (see  King's  Life  and  Correspondence  of  Locke, 
2.  17),  beginning  "  Tho'  you  are  got  quite  to  the  other  side  of  the  world, 
yet  you  ceese  not  to  make  new  acquaintance  here :  and  the  character  you  have 
left  behind  you  makes  your  acquaintance  to  be  sought  after  to  the  remotest 
parts  of  the  earth."  Locke  continues  that  he  has  observed  Lady  Masham  to 
speak  of  her  brother  "  with  more  tenderness  and  concern  than  all  the  rest  of 
the  world  "  :  and  as  she  is  so  good  a  judge  he  feels  that  her  brother's  friend- 
ship is  not  the  least  favour  she  has  done  him.  It  should  be  noted,  however, 
that  the  name  of  the  brother  is  not  given  by  Locke  :  JVI"'  Fox  Bourne  (Life  of 
Locke,  1.  •i74)  says  it  was  written  to  Thomas  Cudworth,  "  a  son  of  the  Master," 
I  do  not  know  on  what  evidence.  He  adds  "'  Young  Cudworth  was  a  Fellow 
of  Christ's  College,  who  at  the  close  of  1679  had  obtained  a  seven  years  dis- 
pensation, extended  in  1686  for  another  seven  years  in  order  that  he  might 
visit  and  reside  in  India."  Now  a  Thomas  Cudworth  was  Fellow  but  only 
from  1685  to  1687  :  he  was  son,  not  of  Ralph,  but  of  John,  the  girdler,  of 
London,  Ralph's  brother ;  therefore  cousin,  not  brother,  to  Damaris  Masham  : 
therefore  Locke's  letter  is  certainly  not  to  him.  It  is  possible  that  Ralph 
also  had  a  son  Thomas:  he  may  have  been  the  Thomas  M.A.  1682  (whom 
see,  page  70)  :  there  is  evidence  from  the  Study-i'ents  that  there  were  two 
Cudworths  in  residence  at  the  same  time  :  see  under  Tho.  Cudworth,  page  64. 
I  have  been  unable  to  find  the  dispensations  in  the  Ccd.  Doin.  State  Papers  to 
which  M"'  Fox  Bourne  alludes  :  but  whatever  thej'  be,  they  cannot  alter  the 
facts  given  above.  I  think  there  can  be  little  doubt  that  Locke  wrote  to 
Charles  Cudworth :  Lady  Masham  may  have  had  insight  into  the  real 
character  of  a  brother,  who  on  other  evidence  seems  to  have  been  quite 
unsatisfactory.  A  Rob.  Cudworth,  son  of  Charles,  was  admitted  in  1699  :  it  is 
natural  to  guess  that  he  was  a  posthumous  son  of  this  Charles  :  if  so  he  was 
barely  15  at  admission  :  whereas  the  age  given  is  17  :  but  that  proves  little.

of  Wivelsfield  1718  till  his  death.  Will  dated  19  June  1721:  apparently 
unmarried,  as  he  mentions  only  three  sisters.  Desired  to  be  buried  at  the 
N. W.  side  of  the  church  "  in  the  out-bounds  of  the  rock,  with  as  little 
company  and  charge  as  possible."  Died  30  July  1721,  age  66.  M.I.  outside 
west  door  of  the  church  :  but  in  the  parish  register  he  is  given  as  buried  Oct.  2 
(probably  by  error  for  Aug.  2).  (Inform",  from  Rev.  F.  C.  Norton,  vicar.) 
Whether  he  was  ordained  late  in  life,  or  only  deferred  his  priest's  orders  to  the

52  CHRIST'S   COLLEGE 

B.A.  1680.  Ordained  deacon,  York,  1680  Sept.  :  priest,  1682  June. 
I  cannot  connect  him  with  the  Legards  of  Ganton,  Yorks.,  E.R.  (pedigree 
in  Genealogist,  N.S.  22)  :  but  two  sons  of  Sir  John  of  Ganton,  Thomas  and 
William,  were  admitted  here  April  1677. 

Lancaster,  Timothy :  "  Colonus  Trinitoniensis  qui  plura  desiderat "  [no  more 
facts].     Admitted  sizar  [tutor  not  given]   20   May  1674. 

Matric".  not  found,  here  or  elsewhere.  B.A.  1674  Mids.,  having  kept  his 
terms  before  admission  here.  "  Trinitoniensis  "  seems  formed  on  the  analogy 
of  Oxoniensis  :  so  perhaps  he  was  of  Trin.  Coll.  Dublin  :  the  last  words,  and 
the  absence  of  further  data  (which  it  would  be  natural  to  give,  if  of  Trin.  Coll. 
Cambridge)  point  the  same  way.  Possibly  he  was  vicar  of  "  Aykesgarth  " 
[Aysgarth,  Yorks.],  March  168|  on  the  presentation  of  Trinity  College,

in  1648  and  rector  of  Bradwell  24  June  1673.  A  Sam.  Golty,  rector  of 
St  Clement's,  Ipswich,  and  of  Dennington  till  his  death  in  1683,  was  of 
St  Catharine's  and  possibly  uncle  of  our  Samuel  :  who  was  ordained  deacon, 
London,  1679  Dec.

1716.  (Blomefield,  4.  52,  767.)  The  praelector  (John  Turner)  gives  the 
following  incoherent  account  of  M"'  Park's  entrance  at  (and,  apparently,  his 
first  exit  from)  Cambridge.  "  Academiam  pauper  adiit,  sed  tempore  quo

There  is  a  pedigree  of  Landens  of  Dalby,  Lines.  (Maddison,  602)  to  which  this 
Benet  may  have  belonged  :  but  it  does  not  come  far  enough  :  there  was  a 
Benet  of  Dalby  admitted  at  the  Middle  Temple  in  1601 — apparently  the  same

dained deacon  and  priest,   Norwich,    1680  June. 


At  this  point — the  last  entry  of  the  academical  year   1674—5,  the   first 
Admission  book  abruptly  closes,  though  only  half  full.     It  contains  nothing 


1676  61 

more,  except  at  a  few  pages  from  the  end  a  memorandum  dated  12  May  1671 
concerning  James  Everard  the  manciple. 

For  some  reason,  Thomas  Lynford,  praelector  for  the  year  1676-7,  copied 
out  into  the  new  book  the  entries  already  made  by  D''  Widdrington  in  the  old 
one  from  15  Oct.  1674  (beginning  with  Rob.  Percevale)  down  to  27  Sept.  1675 
(Will.  Luck).  Except  in  one  case  no  new  facts  are  added  (but  there  are 
some  more  exquisite  terms  in  the  phraseology). 

This  second  book  contains  the  entries  from  15  Oct.  167-t  to  21  June  1859. 
It  is  less  well  kept  than  the  tirst :  and  has  numerous  blank  spaces  for  one  or 
even  two  years,  where  the  praelector  had  wholly  neglected  his  duty.  The 
first  of  these  is  the  year  1675—6.  The  list  of  members  admitted  in  it  can  be 
recovered  from  the  University  matriculation  and  graduation  lists ;  but  im- 
perfectly :  the  whole  number  is  but  fifteen,  which  is  far  below  the  average  of 
the  admissions  at  this  date.  It  is  not  creditable  to  Lynford  that  he  did  not 
take  the  trouble  to  insert  the  entries  for  the  missing  year  1675-6,  which  he 
could  with  ease  have  recovered,  and  that  he  passes  from  Mich.  1675  to  Mich. 
1676  without  any  indication  of  a  blank.

"being  in  good  healtli  of  body  and  of  sound  and  disposing  mind."  His  health

"From  M>'  Cudworth,  M''  Tho.  Cudworth's  gift,  J9.  13s.  id.  "  :  but  whether 
the  gift  be  from  this  Thomas,  or  from  his  cousin,  Ralph's  son  (whom  .see)  I 
cannot  determine  :  probably  this  one.

Kirkby  in  Cleveland  15  Feb.  170i-.  On  1  March  1704  he  became  rector  of

of  tact  by  displacing  the  Mayor  and  Corporation  from  a  gallery  in  the  church, 
built  for  them  20  years  before,  in  order  to  put  an  organ  there.  The  Corpora- 
tion went  to  law  with  the  rector :  but  a  decision  was  given  against  them 
10  June  1712  (Croston-Baines,  4.  280).  Finch  resigned  the  living  in  171|, 
and  removed  to  York,  retaining  his  canonry  there  (as  well  as  that  of  Canter- 
bury) till  his  death.  Resided  in  the  Close  and  interested  himself  in  musical 
matters  :  he  was  a  composer  of  some  merit.  Married  Mary,  third  daughter  of 
D''  Nicholas  Stanley.  He  had  estates  at  Knapton,  Yorks.,  at  Belton,  Ruts., 
and  at  Owston,  Leics.  Died  14  Feb.  173|^  aged  75  :  buried  in  the  south  choir

for  Oct.  1675-Oct.  1676  in  this  place.     As  before  I  give  the  names  as  far  as 


CHRIST'S   COLLEGE 

recoverable  from  the  lists  of  matriculations  and  degrees,  and  from  the  book  of 
Study-rents.  The  number  for  the  year  is  only  20,  viz.  six  matriculations 
in  July,  nine  in  December,  and  five  admissions  between  October  and  December. 
Doubtless  several  are  missing.

before  Mich*'.  1678:  B.A.  IGS-h  There  were  Veales  in  Glos.  and  in  Devon, 
many  of  whom  were  at  Oxford  :  but  I  cannot  connect  him  with  any  :  one

hamsted,  matric''.  at  Lincoln,  Oxford  1676  but  took  no  degree?  If  he  was, 
and  if  he  migrated  from  Christ's  to  Queens',  Cambridge,  he  would  be  of 
sufficient  standing  to  be  the  M.B.  (Queens')  1681,  M.D.  (com.  reg.)  1705,  who 
practised  at  Nottingham,  where  his  son  John  was  buried  1708.  (Godfrey,

Fellow,  and  afterwards  rector  of  Taiisor,  Northants. 

Powell,  Thomas:  son  of  Hobcn-t,  D.  D.,  Chancellor  of  St  Asaph:  born  at  Park, 
S.alop.  School:  ICtoii,  under  M'' Roswell.  Admitted  pensioner  under  M'' Lovott

under  M'  Raskerville.  Admitted  sizar  under  M''  Watorhouse  20  Nov.  1678. 
Age  1.'"). 

R.A.  168]^.  Ordained  deacon,  York,  1684  Sept.  One  Rob.  Jackson,  R. A., 
vicar  of  Beighton,  Derbs.  19  June  1690.  Perhaps  the  same  was  rector  of 
Adel,  Yorks.  27  Aug.  1702  :  described  as  M.A.  (but  there  was  no  Rob. 
Jackson  M.A.  at  either  Cambridge  or  Oxford  at  this  time).  Died  there  1730. 
Grandfather  of  Di'an  C3'ril  Jackson. 

Cudworth,  Thomas : 

M.A.  (/)(■/•  lit.  rn/.)  1682.  The  only  trace  of  him  (apart  from  this  record  at 
the  llniversHy  Registry)  is  that  Tlio.  Cudworth  son  of  John,  the  M.A.  and 
Fellow  of  168.'),  is  called  M'  Tlio.  Cudworth  jii7nor.  Thomas  (senior)  may 
have  been  a  son  of  Ralph  the  Master.  The  registers  of  Great  St  Andrew's 
1641-1661  are  missing:  and  there  is  a  blank  in  the  Admission  Book  from 
Mich.  1677  to  Mich.  1678  :  this  Thomas  may  have  been  admitted  during  that 
time,  and  not  matriculated;  and  then  have  obtained  his  degree  of  M.A.  by 
maiidato  before  the  proper  time.  See  under  Charles  Cudworth,  page  49. 
A  "  M/  Cudworth  "  appears  in  the  Study-rents  in  a  perplexing  way,  among 
Lynford's  pupils.  He  first  is  "  Cudworth '' only  (T;ady  Day  1679)  about  the 
middle  of  the  list:  at  Mich",  he  is'"  M'  C'udworlli  "  in  the  same  place  and  rises 
by  degrees  to  the  top  of  the  list.  He  occurs  till  Lady  Day  1685.  He  cannot  be 
either  of  the  Fellows,  John,  Ralph's  son,  or  Thomas,  John's  son  :  nor  can  he 
he  the  Charles  Cudworth  who  was  in  India  1683  and  died  there  1684.  I  con- 
elude  (lint  he  is  this  Thomas,  possibly  admitted  1677-8,  fellow-commoner  in 
1679  and  (lion.)  M.A.  1682:  but  the  history  is  strange:  Thomas,  Ralph's 
.son,  seems  to  have  no  claim  to  any  special  privilege. 

Maye,  Joseph : 

Admitted  at   Exeter   College,    Oxford,    7    Dec.  1666,    son    of   Joseph    of

Henry  More.  A  letter  (which  has  been  preserved)  from  his  father  on  1  Nov.

Ordained  deacon,  Lincoln,  1688  June;  priest,  August.  Resided  in  College  as

then  Duckfield,  swept  the  field.  Junior  Proctor  1699.  He  was  presented  to 
Navenby  23  March  170f — having  passed  it  two  years  earlier  when  Rob.  Bevin,

By  the  death  of  his  two  elder  brotliers,  Henry  and  John,  without  issue,  he 
succeeded  to  the  Baronetcy  1  July  1729  :  but  he  did  not  resign  Navenby  :  after

I  have  been  shewn  by  Miss  E.  M.  Every  a  curious  MS.  commonplace  book, 
which  belonged  to  John  Every  of  Chardstock  (?  adm.  1648,  uncle  of  this 
Simon) ;  it  contains  also  entries  by  Simon  to  whom  it  passed.  There  is  a 
curious  page  dealing  with  his  meals  in  College  in  Nov.  1693  of  which  I  give 
part  "Friday  3rd  Nov.  dine  in  the  Hall :  at  night  noe  supper. . .  .Sunday  5  of  Nov.

"a  very  ingenious  man,  a  florid  preacher,  and  very  serious  and  affectionate  in 
all  his  performances.  He  met  with  affliction  in  his  marriage,  which  occasioned 
some  unevenness  in  his  temper  :  but  he  was  a  man  of  true  piety  and  integrity. 
He  died  of  a  palsy  in  complication  with  other  distempers.  His  afflictions  had

Massam,  John  :  [no  facts].    Admitted  pensioner  under  M''  Lovett  30  March  1681.

Yates,  Francis :  son  of  William :  born  at  Dunnington  [Donington],  Salop.  [School, 
not  given.]  Admitted  pensioner  under  M"'  Waterhouse  5  April  1681.  Age  15. 
Apparently  kept  the  Mich.  Term  1682  or  the  Lent  Term  1683,  but  no 
more.  One  "  Yeates,  literatus,"  of  Christ's  College,  was  ordained  deacon, 
Glos.,  1686:  priest,  1687.  A  Francis  Yates  was  incumbent  of  St  Nicholas, 
Whitehaven,  1693,  and  rector  of  Moresby  1711-20.  Another,  of  the  same 
name,  was  at  Moresby  1728-35  (Jefferson,  Cumberland,  2.  68,  381). 

Lambert,  Josias  :  son  of  Thomas  :  born  at  Hubberholme,  Yorks.  School :  Giggles- 
wick,  under  M'  Briggs.  Admitted  sizar  under  M''  Lovett  9  April  1681.  Age 
not  given. 

Does  not  appear  in  the  Study-rents.  Probably  the  father  Thomas  was  the 
son  of  John  Lambert  of  Cold  Coniston  in  Craven;  drowned  in  1694  while 
riding  between  Long  Preston  and  Settle  (Whitaker-Morant,  Craven,  256).

sizar  under  M''  Lynford  18  April  1681.     Age  not  given.

younger  brother  of  John  (1668).  Ordained  deacon,  Durham,  1685  Sept. 
Rector  of  Meldon  (about  seven  miles  from  Morpeth)  1695-1726.  Collected

took  no  degree. 

Heathcote,  Gilbert  :  [no  facts  given].  Admitted  pensioner  under  M''  Waterhouse 
22  April  1681. 

Only  one  Heatlicote  is  found  in  the  Study-rents,  and  he  is  doubtless  Ralph 
(admitted  8  July).  See  under  Gilbert,  admitted  1666.  If  dates  be  right, 
neither  can  be  the  banker  and  Lord  Mayor  of  London,  Sir  Gilbert,  "the  grave 
Sir  Gilbert"  who  "holds  it  for  a  rule  that  every  man  in  want  is  knave  or 
fool "  (Pope).  But  probably  each  belonged  to  one  of  the  Derbyshire  families  : 
among  whom  Gilberts  and  Ralphs  are  plentiful.

into  a  pedigree  (dateless)  given  by  Foster,  Yorks.  Visitations,  633.

Watford  1675  {Al.  Ox.).  Capell,  son  of  John,  born  at  Watford,  and  admitted

Appears  in  the  list  of  Waterhouse's  pupils  in  Mich.  1682,  with  no  charge

another  John  Sharpe,  of  Christ's,  was  licensed  to  practise  medicine,  1689. 
Either  might  be  the  John  Sharpe  M.A.,  of  Christ's,  given  by  Cole,  as  chaplain 
of  the  forces  at  New  York  :  probably  the  same  who  emigrated  as  minister  to 
the  Leeward  Islands  27  Feb.  1705-  (Fothergill,  Emigrant  Ministers  to  America, 
p.  54).  Preached  at  Trinity  church.  New  York,  13  Aug.  1706  a  sermon  from

friend,  for  a  Fellowship  :  but  did  not  get  one.  The  letter  is  No.  37  in  a  collec-

Meriton,  John  :  son  of  George  :  born  at  Kirby  Wiske,  Yorks.  School :  [Kirby],

Northants.  in  1695  (Bridges,  2.  27):  also  rector  of  Isham,  where  he  occurs 
1719  {ih.  110).

M''  Home.     Admitted  sizar  under  M''  Lovett  23  Nov.   1682.     Age  15. 

B.A.  168f.  One  Will.  Marshall,  B.A.,  ordained  deacon,  Lincoln,  1687 
May,  and  licensed  to  Stamford  :  he  may  be  of  St  John's,  B.A.  1683  :  a  second, 
B.A.,  ordained  1688  Sept. — described  as  curate  of  Gt  Harborough,  dio.

licensed  to  Roughton,  Lines.;  priest  1691  Sept.;  licensed  to  Marston.  One 
of  these  may  be  of  St  Alban  Hall,  Oxford,  B.A.  1686.     But  any  one  of  the 


90  CHRIST'S   COLLEGE 

three  might  be  our  man  :  as  to  age,  the  last  seems  most  natural.  One  had 
license  to  serve  the  cure  of  Hougham  with  Marston,  Lines.  14  June  1693. 
Finally,  one  Will.  Marshall  was  ordained  priest,  Norwich,  29  May  1697,  and 
described  in  the  register  as  born  at  Lynn,  and  aged  24 :  he  was  probably  vicar 
of  East  Reedham,  Norfolk,  1697-170l  (Blomefield,  3.  835) :  but  if  the  age  be 
right,  he  cannot  be  our  man. 

Ridley,  —  : 

In  Great  St  Andrew's  register  occurs  "  Ridley  a  scholar  of  Christe  College, 
buried  July  the  10th,  1682."  He  appears  as  a  pupil  of  M''  Waterhouse  in  the 
Study-rents  for  Lady  Day  and  Mich.  1682 — in  each  case  with  no  charge  against 
him. 

Wells,  William : 

Matric"*.  pensioner  1682  July:  but  never  appears  in  Study-rents.  Possibly 
son  of  Will.  Wells  admitted  164§. 

Hall,  Henry : 

Matric''.  sizar  1682  Dec.  It  would  seem  likely  tliat  this  was  Hen.  Hall 
admitted  1679  and  only  now  matriculated  :  but  two  men  graduated  as  B.A.  one 
in  168|  and  one  in  168|.  Strangely,  neither  can  be  found  in  the  Study-rents. 
One  Henry  Hall,  son  of  Henry  of  Poplar,  Midds.,  gentleman,  deceased,  was 
admitted  at  the  Middle  Temple,  19  Nov.  1680. 

Littleford,  Thomas : 

M.A.  1688.  Son  of  John  of  Baninghall  [1],  Salop:  matric''.  at  Magdalen 
Hall,  Oxford,  16f§,  aged  16 :  B.A.  1673;  M.A.  (from Christ's)  1688.  Appointed 
Rhetorick  Lecturer  Oct.  1688,  but  he  does  not  appear  in  the  Study-rents,  and 
probably  did  not  reside  in  College  :  so  it  is  impossible  to  say  how  long  he  re- 
mained. He  signs,  immediately  after  the  Fellows  in  the  first  set  of  entries 
in  the  "  Scholars'  Book  "21  June  1689.  According  to  Foster,  Al.  Ox.  918,  he 
was  rector  of  Hughley,  Salop,  in  1686,  i.e.  before  he  came  to  Cambridge  :  and 
of  Quatt  in  1695.  Perhaps  he  was  connected  with  the  Wolrych  family  of 
Dudmaston  and   Quatt. 

From  this  point  there  is  definite  evidence  who  were  scholars  of  the  College, 
supplied  by  the  so-called  "Scholars'  Book":  which  contains  the  declaration 
required  from  all  beneficiaries  of  the  College  of  assent  to  the  Declaration 
against  Transubstantiation,  drawn  up  by  Act  of  Parliament  Charles  II,  30 : 
beginning 

I,  A.  B.,  do  solemnly  and  sincerely  in  the  presence  of  God,  profess,  testifye, 
and  declare,  that  I  doe  believe  that  in  the  sacrament  of  the  Lord's  Supper 
there  is  not  any  Transubstantiation  of  Bread  and  Wine  into  the  Body  and 
Bloud  of  Christ,  at  or  after  the  Consecration  thereof  by  any  person  whatsoever  : 
And  that  the  Invocation  or  Adoration  of  the  Virgin  Mary,  or  any  other  Saint, 
and  the  Sacrifice  of  the  Mass,  as  they  are  now  used  in  the  Church  of  Rome, 
are  Superstitious  and  Idolatrous 

The  book  dates  from  Covel's  time — the  first  signatures  being  aifixed  on 
21  June  1689  by  nine  existing  Fellows,  by  Tho.  Littleford  (above)  and  by 
29  scholars,  and  by  the  remaining  Fellows  and  scholars,  then  existing,  at 
various  dates  down  to  November  1689.  Each  Fellow  and  scholar  signed  from 
December  1689  on  his  admission.  From  this  time  therefore  we  have  the  names 
of  all  scholars  in  their  own  handwriting.  From  18  Nov.  1690  it  is  further 
stated  that  the  scholars  "  did  take  the  Oathes  [required  from  a  scholar]  and 
subscribe  the  Declaration  before  written,"  and  the  book  may  properly  be 
called  a  "  Scholars'  Book." 

The  first  undergraduate  (according  to  admission  at  the  College)  who  signed 
is  Thomas  Oliver,  below. 


1682—1683  91

*Duckfield,  Daniel:  son  of  John:  born  at  Buntingford.  School:  Stortford, 
under  M"' Leigh  p  Thomas,  adm*.  1650].  Admitted  pensioner  under  M"' Lovett 
22  May  1683.     Age  16. 

B.A.  168#;  M.A.  1690.  Son  of  John,  rector  of  Aspeden,  near  Bunting- 
ford  (Ison  of  Daniel  B.A.  1604,  and  vicar  of  Childerditch)  by  his  wife  Joyce, 
daughter  of  D"^  John  Lightfoot,  of  Christ's  and  Master  of  Cath.  Hall.  Elected 
Fellow,  in  the  place  of  D"'  Widdrington,  who  died  10  June  1688,  very  speedily, 
for  he  signs  an  order  23  June,  three  days  before  Cudworth's  death.  Ordained 
deacon,  Lincoln,  1689  May.  He  began  to  take  pupils  in  1691 — and  in  1694  he 
had  69,  while  the  other  fellows  had  22  among  them.  In  1701  (probably  earlier) 
he  was  vicar  of  Newton,  Cambs.  In  his  last  year  1702  (when  the  whole  number 
of  undergraduates  had  fallen  considerably)  he  had  nearly  the  whole  College. 
He  died,  it  would  seem  suddenly,  between  25  March  and  1  May  1702,  aged 
only  35 — a  heavy  loss  to  the  College.  His  dividend  for  Lady  Day  1702  was 
paid  at  Mich,  to  his  administrator  M''  John  Baines,  the  College  cook.  His 
pupils  passed  over  chiefly  to  M''  Withers,  but  M"'  Burton  and  M''  Sherwill  also 
profited. 

There  are  six  letters  of  Duckfield  to  J.  Strype  among  the  Baumgartner 
Papers  :  see  Catalogue  of  MSS.,  Univ.  Lib.,  Cambridge,  v.  147.  John  Lightfoot 
left  many  of  his  papers,  including  a  Concordance  and  sermons,  also  a  journal 
to  his  son-in-law  John,  Daniel's  father  :  these  papers  John  Duckfield  passed 
over  to  Strype  before  1  Oct.  1679  {ib.  13).  On  12  Oct.  1693  Daniel  asks 
Strype  for  a  sight  of  some  of  these  : — he  refers  also  to  a  Targum  on  the 
Chronicles,  translated  by  M''  {]  Sam)  Clark,  and  asks  whether  it  be  recoverable 
— or  any  letters  between  Lightfoot  and  Clark  (ib.  47).  On  10  Jan.  169f  he 
writes  that  everything  but  money  is  ready  for  the  publication  of  the  Targum 
{ib.  17).  In  later  letters  he  explains  the  cause  of  delay  in  returning  the 
journal  to  Strype — also  certain  papers  which  Strype  desired,  which  on  12  June 


1683  93 

1697  he  had  just  recovered  and  forwarded  by  carrier:  he  leaves  the  question 
of  recompense  to  Strype  (ib.  20).  Lastly  on  4  Mar.  169|  he  thanks  Strype 
for  the  Latin  edition  (?  that  of  Lensden,  published  at  Utrecht)  of  his  grand- 
father's works  (ib.  68).

was  transferred  to  M''  Holdsworth,  on  whose  list  his  name  appears  for  a  year, 
but  without  charge  :  probably  he  had  gone  out  of  residence.  Perhaps  son  or 
nephew  of  James  Ardern  (1653),  D.D.,  and  Dean  of  Chester,  whose  father

disputes  with  the  assembly  :  these  are  fully  discussed  in  the  article  in  D.N.B. 
Shute  seems  to  have  been  generallj'  in  the  right,  but  unable  to  carry  out  his

Perhaps  resided  till  Mich.  1685.  Son  of  James  of  the  Inner  Temple,  and 
admitted  there  7  July  1685.  The  pedigrees  of  Fountaine  and  of  Brigge 
(Blomefield,  3.  522,  and  4.  422)  are  not  very  clear  or  (perhaps)  quite  correct. 
Apparentl}',  a  James  Brigge  {temp.  Edw.  VI)  married  a  Mary  Stuteville  : 
they  had  a  daughter  and  heiress  Mary  Brigge  of  Sail  who  married  John 
Fountaine  (1601—71)  Serjeant-at-law  :  they  had  a  son  Brigge  Fountaine  who 
married  Joanna  Henley  and  died  1661  leaving  James  and  Andrew.  James  of 
the  Inner  Temple,  married  Anne  Slany  of  London  (possibly  akin  to  Griffith 
Slany  p.  91)  and  had  Brigge,  our  man  :  Andrew  served  in  three  Parliaments  of 


1684  95 

Charles  II  and  had  also  a  son  Brigge,  who  died  1740  and  was  buried  at  Narford. 
Brigge  Fountains  of  Christ's  seems  to  have  lived  at  Sail :  it  does  not  appear 
that  he  was  married  :  according  to  Blomefield,  he  "  died  without  issue  at  the 
Poppinjay  in  Norwich  in  Apr.  1729,  and  left  his  estate  to  his  sister  Dorothy, 
widow  of  John  Repps,  Esq.,  of  Mateshall."

1696,  and  died  rector  before  June  1705.

Admitted  pensioner  under  D''  Luke  16  April  1684.  Age  not  given.  Fellow- 
commoner  23  July  1686.

22  April  1684. 

B.A.  168f.  Possibly  the  father  was  rector  of  Jevington,  Sussex;  who

Cotgrave,  Notts.,  who  was  admitted  at  Gray's  Inn  22  July  1685  :  or  another 
of  the  same  names,  son  of  Thomas  of  Cheeseworth  near  Horsham,  admitted 
9  Nov.  1685. 

Fish,  Robert :  son  of  Robert :  born  at  Thindon,  Northants.  School :  Kimbolton,

B.A.  16f^.  Subscribed  in  the  Scholars' Book  2  Nov.  1689.  One  Rob.  Fish 
was  ordained  deacon,  Lincoln,  169|  March  by  letters  dimissory  from  London: 
was  appointed  praelector  at  All  Hallows,  London  :  and  also  rector  of  Aunsby 
(near  Sleaford)  21  March  169§.  There  is  extant  a  letter  from  Tho.  Harper, 
rector  of  St  Katherine  Coleman,  London,  undertaking  to  retain  him  as  reader 
in  that  parish,  provided  he  were  ordained  deacon — dated  7  March  169|  :  this 
is  certainly  the  B.A.  of  Christ's.  He  resigned  Aunsby  2  Oct.  1694.  It  is 
not  quite  easy  to  identify  this  rector  and  reader  with  Rob.  Fish,  B.A.  of 
Christ's,  ordained  priest,  Lincoln,  1698,  June,  and  licensed  to  Mulsoe,  Bucks. 
There  was  yet  another  who  was  instituted  on  the  presentation  of  Sir  Thomas 
Bamardiston  to  the  rectory  of  Great  Coates  near  Grimsby,  18  July  1696,  on 
the  resignation  of  his  father,  also  a  Robert :  he  died  there,  as  rector  in  1706 


1685—1686  101 

or  1707  (Rev.  F.  Quirk,  rector):  but  this  man  was  curate  to  his  father  in

and  acquitted.  Miss  Stout  who  was  a  quaker,  took  her  own  life  :  the  prosecu- 
tion was  said  to  be  instituted,  because  the  tories  of  Hertford  wished  to  hang 
an  eminent  whig,  and  the  quakers  wished  to  clear  their  body  of  the  reproach 
of  suicide.  M.P.  for  Beer  Alston  1705  and  1708,  for  Truro  1711.  Attorney

Age  not  given. 

B.A.  16|§.  Subscribed  in  the  Scholars' Book  21  June  1689.  Perhaps  the 
Peter  Collier  admitted  at  Richard  Frankland's  Academy — when  at  Calton — 
on  6  Feb.  168|.  Several  of  Frankland's  scholars  went  on  to  Cambridge, 
though  the  earlier  ones  had  been  at  Cambridge  first.  Collier's  name  does  not 
occur  in  any  of  the  usual  nonconformist  sources  (E.  Axon,  Esq.,  of  Manchestei). 

Becket,  Peter :  son  of  George :  born  at  Eastham,  Cheshire.  School :  Crosby, 
Lanes.,  under  M''  Waring.  Admitted  sizar  under  M''  Waterhouse  14  June

One  of  the  witnesses  to  D'  Widdrington's  will  20  March  168|- :  the  executors 
(probably  unjustly)  charged  him  and  John  Baines  the  cook,  with  embezzling 
D'  Widdrington's  effects  after  his  death  :  hence  a  suit  in  Chancery  1689  :  see 
Oovel's  MS.  account  of  the  proceedings  on  Widdrington's  will.  Ordained 
deacon,  London,  1708  May;  priest,  1710  June.  Assistant  Master  of  Bury 
School  Nov.  1690  :  and  TIead-master,  Dec.  1707-15  (Carlisle,  2.  516) :  perhaps 
Master  of  Guildford,  171-,  to  172- ;  {ib.  57-3) :  but  this  may  be  his  son.  One 
John  Randall  was  rector  of  Thelveton  [Thelton],  Norfolk,  and  ceased  to  be  such 
in  1728,  when  he  was  succeeded  by  his  son  of  the  same  name  (Blomefield,  1.  101). 

Ballydon,  —  :  [no  facts  given].      Admitted  sizar  under  M'  Holdsworth  1686. 

Probably  Paul,  son  of  Paul  Ballydon,  of  Derby,  admitted  at  Lincoln's  Inn 
14  May  1684.     I  doubt  whether  he  ever  resided  here. 

*Withers,  Williani:  son  of  John :  born  at  "  Aram  "  [?],  Lanes.  School :  Lancaster,

Nov.  1 709.  I  cannot  trace  him  further  with  certainty :  one  of  these  names 
was  vicar  of  Tunstall  All  Saints,  Yorks.,  N.R.  19  May  1718-Sept.  1719. 

Machin,  Edmund : 

B.A.  168|.  One  Edward  Machin,  M.A.  (probably  error  for  B.A.)  ordainea 
deacon,  Lincoln,  1689  May:  licensed  to  Gunwardby  [?  Gunby],  Lines.  :  priest

Leonard  Shafto  of  Exeter,  Oxford  (incorp'*.  Cambridge  1668)  and  vicar  of 
Dedham  1665-71,  when  he  became  morning  lecturer  at  All  S'^,  Newcastle 
(Brand,  1.  338) :  he  was  probably  one  of  the  Shaftos  of  Whitworth,  Durham  : 
and  in  1684  the  Master  and  Fellows  agreed  that  young  Leonard,  though  born 
in  Essex,  should  have  the  benefit  of  the  Durham  Scholarship  till  the  next 
election.  He  was  appointed  (as  his  father  had  been)  lecturer  at  All  Saints,

104  CHRIST'S   COLLEGE 

*PinGh,  Robert :  seventh  son  of  Heneage,  Lord  Nottingham,  lately  Lord  Chan- 
cellor: born  at  Kensington  "in  agro  Middlesexiensi."  School :  Felstead,  under 
M"'  Glascock.  Admitted  fellow-commoner  under  M''  Lovett  8  March  168f. 
Age  16. 

M.A.  1693.  Nominated  Finch  and  Baines  Fellow  8  Dec.  1692  on  the 
resignation  of  his  brother  Henry,  and  on  the  same  day  he  took  the  oaths  and 
subscribed  the  Declaration  in  the  Scholars'  Book.  On  30  May  1694  he  signed 
the  order  for  the  presentation  of  M'  Fairmedow  to  Anstey,  though  not  (as  Adam 
Wall  notes)  on  the  number  of  the  Foundation  Fellows.  He  appears  regularly 
(together  with  Ambrose  Launder)  in  the  list  of  Lovett's  pupils,  neither  being 
charged :  but  the  note  in  one  place  "  M"'  Finch  and  Launder  to  the  Master, 
£1.  15s.  Od."  shews  that  they  had  rooms  in  the  Master's  Lodge;  Cudworth  and 
Covel  during  part  at  least  of  their  tenure  used  to  live  in  the  "  Little  Lodge  " 
and  let  the  rooms  in  the  "  Master's  Lodging."  A  similar  "  to  the  Master," 
but  without  names,  appears  in  earlier  years.  Robert  Finch  died  in  College 
1696,  and  was  buried  at  Great  St  Andrew's  16  July.  He  left  to  the  College 
the  income  of  his  rooms — not  at  the  Lodge,  where  he  had  ceased  to  reside, 
when  he  became  a  Fellow,  and  M"'  Lovett  (after  some  time)  succeeded  him. 
The  income  was  valued  at  £48.  10s.  Od. 

Launder,  Ambrose  :  [no  facts  given].  Admitted  sizar  under  M'  Lovett  8  March 
168f 

B.A.  169^.  See  under  Robert  Finch  above  :  it  would  seem  that  M''  Finch 
brought  Launder  up  with  him  as  his  personal  servant,  and  both  lived  together 
in  the  Lodge.  Ordained  deacon,  Lincoln,  1691  Sept.  :  licensed  to  Ravenstone,

M"'  Twells.  Admitted  pensioner  under  M"'  Holds  worth,  — ■  1687.  Age  not

Resided  till  Lady  Day  1689.  Probably  son  of  Robert,  of  Newark,  admitted 
1652.  The  eldest  daughter  of  Robert  and  Mary  Atkinson  of  Newark  died 
1702  :  I  have  not  found  the  date  of  Robert's  death,  but  his  widow,  Mary, 
died  1723  (Shilton,  Neivark,  227). 

Clavering,  Thomas :  [no  facts  given].  Admitted  sizar  under  M"'  Holdsworth

Clavering  of  Gateshead,  was  baptised  5  May  1668.     (Surtees,  2.  228.)

Sold  his  estate  for  an  annuity,  having  ruined  himself  by  being  surety  for  a

Thomas  Echard,  incumbent  of  one  of  the  Barshanis.  By  his  own  statement 
he  was  "  nearly  related  "  to  D''  John  Eachard,  Master  of  St  Catharine's  1675- 
97.  Subscribed  in  the  Scholars'  Book  21  June  1689  ("Eachard,"  as  the  elder 
members  of  the  family  spelt  it ;  Laurence  and  his  brother  Chris,  wrote 
"Echard"  when  taking  the  M.A.  degree).  He  resided  at  Christ's  till  1696 
and  doubtless  compiled  there  the  material  for  his  future  literary  work.  Ordained, 
Norwich,  probably  before  May  1692  (when  a  gap  in  the  Norwich  book  ends). 
Beneficed  in  Lincoln,  at  Welton,  near  Louth,  and  Elkington  (5  Aug.  1696),  he 
obtained  preferment  early  :  he  was  prebendary  of  Lincoln  (Louth)  24  Apr. 
1697-1730  and  Archdeacon  of  Stowe  1712-30.  He  lived  at  Louth,  where  he 
wrote  the  first  of  a  series  of  books,  which  had  extraordinary  vitality.  His 
circumstances  were  very  bad,  according  to  Archbishop  Wake,  who  exerted 
himself  to  obtain  a  grant  for  him  from  the  King  :  and  George  I  presented  him 
to  Sudborne  and  Rendlesham  in  Suffolk — the  last  by  dispensation  14  Sept. 
1722.  His  health  was  bad  but  this  did  not  affect  his  work.  In  1730  he  was 
on  his  way  to  Scarborough,  but  got  no  furtlier  than  Lincoln,  where  he  died 
August  16,  and  was  buried  in  the  church  of  St  Mary  Magdalen  on  the  29th. 
He  married  (1)  Jane  Potter,  (2)  Justin  Wooley  of  Well,  Lines,  but  had  no 
children.     His  portrait  is  in  the  College  Library. 

Author:  Description  of  Ireland,  1691  :  of  Flanders,  1691  :  Compendium 
of  Geography,  1691,  which  went  into  the  eighth  edition  in  1713  :  all  these  when 
he  was  oidy  20.  His  History  of  England  appeared  in  1707,  with  its  con- 
tinuation in  1718,  and  appendix  in  1720.  His  other  best  known  books  were 
the  Roman  History,  1698,  and  Ecclesiastical  History,  1702  :  all  these  went 
through  numerous  editions  and  were  standard  text-books.  Less  known,  but 
really  good,  is  a  translation  of  three  plays  of  Plautus  (Amphilryo,  Epidicus, 
and  Pudens)  published  in  1694,  while  he  was  still  at  Cambridge. 

A  satirical  contrast  of  the  work  of  Gilbert  Burnet  and  Ijaurence  Eachard 
(given  in  Kippis,  Biog.  Brit.  5.  534)  is  amusing : 

Gil's  history  appears  to  me 
Political  anatomy, 
A  case  of  skeletons  well  done, 
And  malefactors  everyone. 

Laurence  proceeds  another  way. 
And  well-dressed  figures  does  display:

1688. 

M.B.  1690  (John  Morgan).  He  must  have  kept  sufficient  terms  elsewhere  :

matriculated  at  St  Mary  Hall,  Oxford  2  March  168|,  aged  18  (Al.  Ux.  1030).

of  him  that  "  fi-om  a  vow  or  vision  in  the  flower  of  his  age  he  wore  a  beard  to 
his  girdle  sufficient  for  a  Greek  patriarch  "  :  this  eccentricity  was  noted  as  an 
indication  that  John  Colbatch's  wits  were  not  of  the  best  :  Bentley  allows 
that  George  was  a  "harmless  quiet  clergyman  and  much  the  better  of  the  two." 
According  to  Monk  {Life  of  Bentley,  2.  136)  he  was  vicar  of  Abington,  Cambs.

B.A.  169f ;  M.A.  1699.  Seems  to  have  deferred  residence  for  a  year  :  he 
first  appears  in  the  list  of  Holdsworth's  pupils,  Mich.  1692,  without  any 
charge ;  not  again  :  perhaps  he  kept  in  the  Master's  lodging.  Admitted

was  born  1674.  Elected  Fellow  27  Jan.  169S  in  the  place  of  John  Cudworth. 
The  election  caused  some  dissatisfaction,  as  appears  from  a  us.  book  of  Simon 
Every  :  his  note  for  the  day  is  "  then  the  Hon.  Ma[ster]  of  Xst's  Coll. 
chooses  Bold.  Fellow  against  both  the  Coll.  St.  and  y"  Law  of  y''  realm  "  :  the

to  1713  he  was  the  most  important  tutor  liaving  between  i  and  ^  of  the  whole 
number.  Presented  to  Fen  Drayton  26  July  1707  :  this  did  not  interfere 
with  his  residence  in  College.  Senior  Proctor  1713.  On  22  April  1713  he 
was  presented  to  Cli(iston,  vacant  by  the  death  of  Alex.  Young :  which 
should  have  vacated  his  Fellowship  April  1714  in  the  middle  of  his  Proctor- 
ship.      He  availed  himself  of  his  nomination  to  be  "president  "—though  the 


120  CHRIST'S   COLLEGE 

Statutes  recognised  no  such  office — to  retain  his  Fellowship  for  three  years. 
The  Master  supported  him  on  the  strength  of  the  Elizabethan  Statute  about 
"  praesides  "  ;  every  College  must  have  a  "  praeses  "  :  who  shall  be  "  vicarius  " 
in  the  Master's  absence.  In  Oct.  1714  three  of  the  Fellows  (Moor,  Husband 
and  Cockshutt)  appealed  to  the  V.C.  who  gave  notice  that  he  would  hear  the 
appeal  on  Oct.  29.  Perhaps  it  was  withdrawn :  in  any  ease,  there  is  no  decision 
on  the  point  in  the  "  Visitor's  Box,"  and  Boldero  retained  his  fellowship  till 
15  Oct.  1716,  when  he  wrote  in  the  Order  Book  his  formal  resignation,  and 
Covel  wrote  his  acceptance  of  it.  In  1721  Aug.  26  he  had  a  dispensation  to 
hold  with  Clipston  the  rectory  of  Dingley,  distant  five  miles.  He  married 
Abigail  Dickens,  of  Bosworth,  widow,  by  whom  he  had  no  children.  Died 
22  May  1751,  aged  77:  M.I.  in  Ix worth  church.  His  nephew,  John,  was 
admitted  1715  and  his  grand-nephew,  also  John,  1748.  Author:  a  sermon 
on  Deut.  xxxiii.  29,  published  1716.  Probably  his  qualifying  sermon  under 
the  Elizabethan  Statute  !  However  he  cared  for  some  books,  for  on  leaving 
Cambridge  he  purchased  from  the  Library,  under  College  order  of  7  Dec. 
1717,  "M"'  Medes  Works,  Fuller's  Church  History,  Plutarch's  Works,

said  to  have  been  born  in  1660  (see  pedigree  in  J.  B.  Bright's  History  of  the 
Briyhts  of  Suffolk).  Possibly  that  Thomas  died  in  infancy  and  was  followed  by 
another  brother  called  Thomas,  born  ca.  1675  (S.H.  A.H.).  Died  27  Apr.  1727 
and  buried  in  Thurston  church,  the  burial  place  of  the  family;  Netherhall  is

13  Sept.  1692. 

I  do  not  find  him  in  the  Study-rents.  The  date  seems  inconsistent  with 
the  supposition  that  he  was  the  sou  of  John,  first  Baron  Kingston  (in  1660) 
and  of  Catharine  Fenton  :  third  Baron  Kingston  having  succeeded  in  1693  his

His  name  appears  in  Study-rents  till  Lady  Day  1694.  Perhaps  he  is  the 
Timothy  Blomfield,  son  of  Mark,  then  of  Sharnbrook  who  was  ma  trie'',  at 
St  Mary  Hall,  Oxford,  6  Dec.  1694,  aged  18.     He  took  no  degree.

*Hobart,  Thomas : 

Not  found  before  27  March  1699  when  he  was  admitted  as  Finch  and  Baines 
Fellow  on  the  nomination  of  the  Eail  of  Nottingham,  in  place  of  M''  Lovett. 
M.D.  1700.  Though  not  in  Orders  he  was  Junior  Dean  and  Catechist  1700. 
Praelector  1702  :  but  had  a  deputy.  T  cannot  trace  him  till  23  Apr.  1709 
when  he  had  leave  to  travel  abroad  for  six  months  (probably  as  a  private  tutor) 
"he  paying  \0s.  each  time  for  reading  his  course  [in  Chapel]  and  10«.  for 
reading  on  the  Festivals."  He  must  have  ti-avelled  already,  perhaps  for 
three  years  ;  otherwise  he  would  not  have  needed  leave  for  a  first  journey  :  such 
travel  was  a  wise  provision  to  encourage  medical  research.  I)''  Hobart  seems 
to  have  signally  abused  the  liberty  given  thereby.  On  3  May  1710  he  had 
leave  for  another  three  months  without  conditions.  On  24  July  1712  he  had 
leave  to  travel  out  of  England  for  three  years  "  to  go  along  with  the  Duke  of 
Leeds  grandson  ]\K  Cook":  on  6  May  1715  this  charge  was  prolonged  for

[Lynn],  under  M''  Home.  Admitted  pensioner  under  M''  Ducktield  20  Jan. 
169f.     Age  16. 

B.A.  170^  ;  M.A.  1704  ;  D.D.  {com.  reg.)  17-28.  Admitted  scholar  20  Mar. 
169f.  Elected  Fellow  1  May  1702  on  the  death  of  Dan.  Ducktield.  Ordained 
deacon,  Ely,  170|  Feb.:  priest,  Lincoln,  170f  March.  Junior  Dean,  Catechist 
and  Bunting  Preacher,  1704.  Praelector  1705.  From  the  beginning  of  1709 
to  Oct.  1710,  he  attended  no  meeting  and  was  perhaps  non-resident;  for  the 
next  three  years  he  appears,  but  was  elected  to  no  office.  Senior  Dean  1713  : 
again  Jan.  171f  in  place  of  M''  Moor:  again  in  1721.  Taxor  1708.  Senior 
Proctor  1718.  His  fellowship  was  declared  vacant  by  the  Master  in  Oct.  1714, 
because  he  had  inherited  from  his  father  an  estate  at  Gaywood  near  Lynn. 
He  declared  that  his  father's  debts  exceeded  the  value  of  the  inheritance  :  and 
refused  to  answer  further  questions.  Covel  ejected  him  :  but  the  V.O.,  Jolm 
Green  of  Corpus  "  a  man  of  liberal  sentiments  beyond  the  age  in  which  lie 
lived  "  (Masters,  249),  reinstated  him  on  appeal.  Feeling  in  the  College  (as  in 
the  University)  was  divided  by  politics  both  public  and  domestic.  Towers  was 
a  zealous  Whig  :  also  a  supporter  of  D''  Bentley,  while  the  Master  was  of 
Gooch's  side.  Towers,  as  Proctor  in  October  1718  on  the  day  when  Bentley 
was  suspended  from  his  degrees,  challenged  D''  Gooch  to  point  out  the  law  or 
statute  on  which  the  proposed  grace  was  founded  :  and  in  liis  address  to  the 
Senate  he  publicly  criticised  the  Heads  for  the  degradation.  On  Covel's 
death.  Towers,  who  was  Senior  Fellow,  was  elected  in  Jan.  172|,  not  without 
opposition  :  four  of  the  Fellows  (headed  by  Ra.  Aynsley)  waited  on  the  V.C. 
(as  Visitor)  and  asked  him  to  interfere  as  the  election  was  made  not  according 
to  Statute  :  but  nothing  followed  :  an  opinion  of  one  Ja.  Johnson  that  the 
vote  of  a  Fellow  for  himself  as  Master  (if  such  vote  completes  a  statutable 
majority)  is  valid,  is  in  our  Muniment-room  and  seemingly  in  Towers'  hand- 
writing :  I  infer  that  he  had  voted  for  himself  and  then  strengthened  himself 
with  a  legal  opinion.  Political  feeling  kept  him  long  out  of  the  Vice-Chancel- 
lorship :  in  1733  he  was  defeated  :  in  1734  he  was  nominated,  and  thanks  to 
Bentley,  who  as  Regius  Professor  struck  out  his  most  formidable  opponent, 
was  elected.  (See  Gunning,  Ceremonies;,  46,  note.)  Nothing  memorable  occurred 
during  his  tenure  of  office.  In  College  there  was  much  disputation  during  his 
Mastership,  chiefly  concerning  Fellowships  :  it  is  noteworthy  that  he  declared 
vacant  the  Fellowship  of  Hen.  Finch  in  1736  on  grounds  similar  to  those  on 
which  Covel  had  declared  his  own — and  with  equal  lack  of  success  :  see  under 
Finch  (1712).  Cole  charges  him  with  "love  of  squabbles  and  Law"  and 
"  wrong-headedness  "  but  admits  that  he  was  "  esteemed  to  be  an  honest  and 
well-meaning  man  " — which  is  much  for  Cole  when  speaking  of  a  Whig.  He 
had  the  rare  virtue  for  that  time  of  not  being  a  self-seeker  :  Cole  says  that  he 
lost  the  office  of  King's  Chaplain  by  a  "  peculiar  unaccountableness  of  manner  " 
in  taking  no  notice  of  the  offer :  and  adds  that  he  also  gave  awa}'  his  chance 
of  a  Bishopric,  to  which  his  services  entitled  him  ("he  having  always  behaved 
himself  steadily  in  the  Hanover  interest,  and  that  at  a  juncture  when  it  was 
most  wanted"),  by  "his  morose,  sour  and  rough  manner."  Perhaps  "unsociable" 
might  be  substituted  for  Cole's  epithets  :  it  suits  his  further  account :  "  those 
best  acquainted  with  him,  which  were  but  few,  he  living  much  by  himself, 
gave  him  the  character  of  a  very  facetious  and  pleasant  companion,  that  he 
was  a  good  historian,  and  that  there  was  hardly  a  gentleman's  family  in  England 
he  did  not  know  the  private  history  of,  and  hardly  a  village  in  the  kingdom 
which  he  could  not  describe;  making  it  his  constant  practice  to  travel  privately 
about  in  the  summer,  and  was  never  better  pleased  than  when  unknown  and 
unobserved."  He  commenced  a  full  and  very  good  account  of  the  College 
properties :    but  did  not  get  on  far  with  it.     He  followed  D''  Covel  in  one

1  March  1745  at  four  in  the  morning  of  a  violent  fever  (Cole).  Buried  in 
the  Chapel  6  March,  near  Covel,  without  any  memorial.

Baines  who  seems  to  have  been  at  Tonbridge  came  up  to  give  his  vote,  which 
he  had  promised  some  time  before,  for  Burvill :  this  would  have  given  him  the 
necessary  majority.  But  Baines  was  induced  to  absent  himself  from  the  meeting

with  the  John  Paley,  supposed  to  be  the  first  of  LangclifFe,  who  had  sons 
Thomas  b.  1675  and  William  b.  1680  (admitted  here  16  June  of  this  same 
year)  is  not  clear.  Possibly  John  (the  father)  and  the  original  William  were 
brothers. 

Shaw,  Thomas:  son  of  John:  born  at  Colchester.  School:  Brentwood.  Ad- 
mitted pensioner  under  M"'  Waterhouse  30  Mar.  1698.     Age  16. 

LL.B.  1703.  Admitted  scholar  21  Feb.  169|.  A  John  Shaw  of  St  Ann's, 
Colchester  married  about  1677  Anne,  daughter  of  Tho.  Broom,  Serjeant-at-law, 
and  had  sons  John  (who  died  without  issue  1715)  and  Thomas,  perhaps  our 
man:  on  John's  death  the  family  estate  was  sold  (Morant,  1.  118).  One 
Tho.  Shaw  was  vicar  of  Wyberton,  Lines.  17  Oct.  1712,  patron,  John  Shaw 
(for  this  turn). 

*Aynsley,  Ralph :  son  of  Mark  :  born  at  Gallowshill  [in  parish  of.  Bolam], 
Northumb''.  School  :  Durham,  under  M''  Rudd.  Admitted  sizar  under 
M--  Duckfield  7  May  1698.     Age  18. 

B.A.  170^;  M.A.  1705.  Signed  first  Aynsley :  then  regularly  Anesley. 
Admitted  scholar  21  Feb.  169f.  Ordained  deacon,  London,  1702  May. 
Elected  Fellow  27  June  1704,  succeeding  Hen.  Cook.  Junior  Dean,  Cateohist 
and  Bunting  Preacher  1708.  Praelector  1708.  Steward  1709.  Senior  Dean 
1715,  1722.  Scrutator  for  the  University  1715.  Had  a  very  few  pupils — 
the  last  in  1711.  Presented  to  Hapton  4  July  1717  :  to  Gately  9  Apr.  1718 
(succeeding  Rob.  Withers  who  died  there) :  resigned  it  before  29  April  1724  : 
the  value  being  small  he  retained  his  Fellowship  with  it  (it  was  afterwards 
augmented  by  a  beneficial  lease  of  the  rectory)  :  probably  he  did  not  reside. 
On  25  Jan.  172|  he  was  nominated  together  with  Tho.  Husband  for  Lord 
Berkeley's  usual  selection  for  the  rectory  of  Kegworth  :  but  Lord  Berkeley 
chose  M"'  Husband.  On  27  Mar.  1724  he  was  presented  to  Ingoldsby,  vacant 
by  the  death  of  Ri.  Ward — the  first  presentation  made  by  the  College :  his 
fellowship  was  declared  vacant  17  Jan.  172|.  Died  at  Ingoldsby  and  buried 
there  3  Jan.  17^^. 

Aynsley  was  doubtless  a  Tory  and  politically,  perhaps  personally,  hostile 
to  Towers.  It  was  he  and  Boldero  who  induced  Covel  to  declare  Towers' 
fellowship  vacant  in  1714,  and  probably  he  was  the  Fellow  who  ran  Towers 
hard  for  the  Mastership  in  172|.  He  was  one  of  the  four  Fellows  who 
desired  the  V.C.  to  enquire  into  the  circumstances  of  that  election.  Probably 
he  was  not  unwilling  to  get  away  from  the  College  after  20  years  of  residence 
in  1724.     He  seems  not  to  have  remained  for  his  "year  of  grace."

the  connexion  of  the  various  members  of  the  College  of  this  name,  so  far  as 
known  :  I  am  indebted  for  it  to  M"'  W.  B.  Paley,  the  present  representative

to  Dowager  Countess  of  Salisbury.  On  4  June  1729  had  dispensation  to 
hold  also  the  vicarage  of  Wennington,  distant  two  miles.  A  Tho.  England

died  rector  of  Crich,  Derbs.  7  Feb.  1730  (1  173J).  (Cox,  Derbs.  Churches,

Keate,  William  :  son  of  James  :  born  at  Char(d)stock,  Dorset.  School :  Chard. 
Admitted  sizar  under  M''  Duckfield  25  June  1698.  Age  18:  but  (as  the 
praelector,  John  Broughton,  implies)  more  ;  "  non  Tyro,  sed  (si  Barbae  tides) 
emeritus;  annum  agens  (prout  ipse  modeste  satis  testatur)  undevigesimum." 

B.A.  170i.  Admitted  scholar  21  Feb.  169|.  James  Keate  was  of  Wadham 
and  Exeter  and  vicar  of  Chardstock  1669.  The  praelector's  suspicion  as  to 
William's  age  makes  it  unlikely  that  he  was  the  Rev.  Sir  Will.  Keate,  Bart., 
who  died  at  Digswell,  near  Welwyn  6  Feb.  1757  aged  72  {Gent.  Mag.  p.  142) —

St  Michael,  Northumberland  :  died  vicar  1746. 

Cooper,  John  [probably  by  error  for  William] :  B.A.  of  Peterhouse :  admitted  in

1698.     Age  18. 

B.A.  (Whichcott  Greggs)  at  Pembroke,  1705.  The  perversion  of  his 
own  name  is  as  strange  as  his  ignorance  of  his  father's. 

Mason,  Edward:  B.A.  of  Oxford  four  years  before  at  "Balial."  Admitted

B.A.  170§;  M.A.  1706.  Admitted  (Baynes)  scholar  21  Feb.  169|. 
Younger  son  of  John  the  dp^'Mayftpos  (see  under  Matthew,  1694):  he  signs 
his  own  name  Baynes,  by  a  freak,  as  his  kindred  were  all  Baines.  The  last  (and 
at  the  time  the  only)  pupil  of  M"'  Lovett,  to  whom  the  cook  remained  faithful : 
Baines  kept  in  the  Master's  lodging,  with  his  tutor  (who  also  had  rooms  there) 
till  at  least  Mich".  1706  :  the  usual  entry  in  the  list  of  Fellows  and  their 
pupils  being  "  M"'  Baines  (the  cook)  for  his  son."  Ordained  deacon,  London,

was  chaplain  to  the  Earl  of  Denbigh.     He  held  Ringstead  till  173.5  (?  1753).

1701.  Son  of  the  third  Viscount  by  Mary,  daughter  of  Sir  Phil.  Egerton  of 
Egerton,  Cheshire.  Fourth  Viscount  Bulkeley  of  Cashel,  170L  M.P.  for 
Anglesey  1 705-24.  Gave  in  1 702  to  the  restoration  of  the  Chapel  £21.1 2s.  Od. 
Constable  of  Beaumaris  Castle  ;  and  of  Carnarvon  1713.  Married  Lady 
Bridget  Bertie,  daughter  of  James,  Earl  of  Abingdon  ;  had  two  sons,  the 
fifth  and  sixth  Viscounts.     Died  at  Bath,  1724,  aged  41.     (Collins,  8.  16.) 

Butler,  Jacob :  son  of  John,  LL.D.  :  born  at  Wallington,  Herts.  School  : 
Bishop  Stortford,  under  M''  Tooke.  Admitted  pensioner  under  M''  Duckfield 
16  Aug.  1698.     Age  16. 

B.A.  170| ;  M.A.  1706.  Admitted  scholar  21  Feb.  169f.  John,  the  father, 
who  married  Susanna  Bodendick,  was  rector  of  Wallington.  Barrister  at 
law  :  proprietor  of  an  estate  at  Barnwell,  Oarabs.  where  he  lived  and  died. 
Six  feet  four  inches  in  height  and  very  eccentric.  Married  Rose,  daughter  of 
—  Clerk,  rector  of  Somerby.  He  erected  in  Barnwell  Church  three  tablets  to 
his  ancestors  and  three  more  autobiographical,  leaving  the  dates  of  the  death 
of  himself  and  iiis  wife  to  be  filled  in.  These  three  are  printed  at  length  in 
Cooi)er's  Annals,  4.  336-9,  and  are  curious,  but  too  long  to  give  here.  They 
describe  his  "  invariable  steadiness  in  the  cause  of  Liberty,  which  would  have 
entitled  him  to  rewards  in  any  age  or  country  where  Virtue  was  not  a 
crime  and  Corruption  the  safest  path  to  Honour."  His  virtue  was  chiefly 
shewn  in  fighting  with  the  Corporation.  Once  (in  1754)  he  offered  himself  as 
a  candidate  for  Parliament,  but  without  success  :  but  entitled  himself  justly 
to  the  name  of  the  Old  Briton.  His  labours  in  the  cause  of  freedom  were 
many.  He  fought  a  M'  Sindrey  an  alderman  of  the  town  who  (like  Ahab 
king  of  Israel)  wanted  his  neighbour's  propei'ty  on  which  to  erect  a  dog-kennel ; 
here  M''  Butler  was  successful  in  his  action.  Edward  Gillam,  a  farmer  of 
Cambridge,  would  plough  30  acres  of  the  Lammas  land  south  of  Cambridge  : 
whereby  "  all  the  sheep  were  damaged  in  their  feed  much  more  in  their 
winter  layer  "  :  hence  another  successful  action.  He  ended  his  life  28  May 
1765  aged  84,  and  Rose  Butler  5  May  1778  aged  87  :  they  were  both  buried 
in  the  same  grave  made  by  him  on  the  south  side  of  the  chancel.

presented  15  Sept.  1723  to  Hapten,  and  on  24  April  1724  to  Gately  which  he 
held  till  1732.  On  11  May  1732  he  was  the  first  College  nominee  to  Little 
Canfleld,  Essex  :  and  he  vacated  his  Fellowship  4  June  1733.  He  did  not 
occupy  the  rectory  house  at  Canfield,  which  was  tenanted  by  a  farmer.  He 
died  there  14  June  1749  aged  64  :  his  tombstone  in  the  nave,  just  west  of  the 
chancel,  calls  him  "a  learned  and  pious  divine"  :  but  I  have  not  found  that 
he  published  even  an  assize  sermon.  His  knowledge  of  the  College  history  as 
well  as  of  the  accounts  is  attested  by  his  "statute  book"  to  which  he  sufiixed 
a  good  deal  of  interesting  matter.  In  1720,  two  years  before  Covel's  death,  a 
real  balance  in  the  College  accounts,  with  the  surplus  from  the  last  Audit 
carried  over,  appears  for  the  first  time :  and  the  credit  must  be  assigned  to 
Atherton.  He  was  a  subscriber  to  Ford's  Articidi  1720  (J.E.B.M.)  and  to 
Sanderson's  Algebra  1740.

The  rector  of  Middleton  1670-1700  was  Roger  Middleton:  possibly  the

Lady  Day  170f,  and  his  name  occurs  without  charge  for  two  quarters  more  :  he 
was  ordained  deacon,  Norwich,  1707  June,  as  B.A. :  but  not  so  in  Gat.  Grad.

Appears  in  the  list  of  M'  Burton's  pupils  Mich.  1703 — but  with  no  charge 
against  him.  Perhaps  never  resided.  It  is  not  unlikely  that  he  was  a  son  of 
Tho.  Charleton  of  Chilwell,  Notts.,  and  grandson  of  Tho.  Charleton,  admitted 
16.36,  afterwards  Sheriff  of  Notts.     If  so,  he  died  in  1703.

for  Cambs.,  an  hearty  and  chearfull  man  and  great  Card-player,  but  much 
troubled  with  the  gout"  :  his  handwriting  is  completely  broken  when  in  1772 
he  made  an  affidavit  in  the  Wigley  case  that  "in  my  time  it  was  understood 
to  be  the  rule  of  the  Society  that  a  Junior  who  would  quit  his  Fellowship  for 
a  living  should  be  preferred  to  a  Senior  who  proposed  to  hold  it  with  his

1706,  Ladj'  Day  and  Mich^  (not  Mids.  or  Xmas)  1707,  in  each  case,  without 
charge. 

B.A.  170|.  Possibly  the  Edw.  Daniell,  1687-1746,  sou  of  John  Daniell 
•of  Daresbury  :  died  at  Chester  1746  and  was  buried  at  Daresbury.  (Ormerod- 
Helsby,  1.  734.) 

*Sitwell,  Thomas : 

B.  A.  (Corpus)  1 7^§ ;  M.  A .  1 7 1 3.  Probably  son  of  Geo.  Sit  well  of  Renishaw, 
Yorks.  (1657—1723)  and  of  Anne,  daughter  and  heiress  of  Tho.  Kent  of  Povey, 
Dronfield  :  see  Hunter,  Hallitmshire,  373  (where  he  is  given  wrongly  as  a 
Fellow  of  Corpus)  :  he  inherited  Povey  by  his  grandfather's  will.  Admitted 
at  Corpus   170.5.      Elected   Fellow   of  Christ's — succeeding   Cha.    Smithson^ 

30  Nov.  1714.  Held  no  office  (though  he  resided  regularly)  till  Oct.  1719 
when  he  was  Praelector,  Junior  Dean,  Catechist,  Bunting  Preacher,  and 
Steward.  Held  nothing  more  till  1726  when  he  was  Senior  Dean:  Mildmay 
Preacher  1727.  He  was  Junior  Proctor  1727-8.  From  1715  he  had  one  or 
two  pupils — at  no  time  more  than  three.  On  12  Sept.  1725  he  had  a  lease  of 
the  tithes  of  Haptou  :  but  continued  to  reside  :  resigned  early  in  1727.  There 
were  "  exceedings  "  in  Hall  12  May  1727  "when  M'  Sitwell  dined  there": 
the  reason  is  not  obvious  as  he  attended  several  meetings  in  that  j'ear  :  per- 
haps it  was  known  that  he  intended  to  be  a  benefactor.  On  13  Nov.  1731  he 
was  presented  to  Caldecot,  succeeding  Tho.  Wilkinson.  After  the  end  of 
1733  he  was  rarely  present  at  a  meeting,  and  perhaps  resided  at  Caldecot. 
He  died  early  in  1737  and  was  buried  in  the  ante-chapel  (Adam  Wall).  He 
left  £20  for  the  poor  of  Caldecot ;  and  to  the  College  he  left  the  income  of 
his  chamber  and  £600  for  the  augmentation  of  the  Mastership  and  Fellowships : 
the  interest  was  divided  annually  as  "  M''  Sitwell's  benefaction."  It  was 
invested  in  South  Sea  Annuities.  In  1854  the  capital  was  sold  out,  and 
£660  2  "/o  Consols  were  bought.  In  1856  these  were  in  turn  sold — and  the 
proceeds  invested  in  the  purchase  of  the  Harvey  Charity  estate  at  Meldreth. 

Sharpe,  Abraham :  [father  not  given]  ;  born  at  Bradford.  School  not  given. 
Admitted  sizar  under  M"'  Withers  22  Feb.  1704.     Age  not  given.

1715.  Had  dispensation  from  Lambeth  to  hold  also  the  vicarage  of  Market 
Weighton,   Yorks.    17   Apr.    1719:    for  this  he  had  license  of   non- residence 

31  Dec.  1726.  Possibly  his  father  was  Abraham  Sharpe,  the  well  known 
mathematician  of  Bradford,  who  died  1742,  aged  91,  to  whom  Jonas  Water- 
house  of  Bradford  left  by  will  (1715)  all  his  books  and  mss. 

Claphamson,  Hugh:  son  of  Hui<h  :  born  at  Giggleswick.  School:  Giggleswick, 
under  M"'  Armitstead.  Admitted  sizar  under  M''  Withers  1  March  170t. 
Age  18. 

B.A.  170^.  Admitted  scholar  5  March  1702.  Ordained  deacon,  York, 
1709  June:  priest  1711   May. 

At  this  point  there  are  no  more  entries  till  Oct.  1705,  and  a  gap  of  one  and 
a  half  leaves  in  the  Admission  Book,  which  was  never  filled  up.  The  prae- 
lector for  the  year  was  Thomas  Thomson.  But  the  Study-rent  book  does  not 
show  any  names  of  men  who  came  into  residence  before  Oct.  1705,  which  are 
not  found  in  the  University  Matriculations. 


162  CHRIST'S   COLLEGE 

Burchall,  Josiah : 

Matric''.  sizar  1705.  Admitted  a  pupil  of  M''  Withers  before  Dec.  1704  : 
resided  till  Lady  Day  1708. 

King,  William :

B.A.  170| ;  M.A.  1712.  Ordained  deacon,  London,  1711  May.  One  of  these 
names  vicar  of  Wroxham,  Norfolk  1711-19.  (Blomefield,  5.  1387.)  Accord- 
ing to  Davy  one  was  vicar  of  Mildenhall,  Suffolk  :  died  in  1714,  aged  27  ;  and 
buried  there  :  the  date  and  age  suit. 

Sherson  (Shierson),  William: 

Admitted  a  pupil  of  M''  Withers  and  resided  before  Mich".  1705.  Matric''. 
sizar  170f. 

B.A.  170^.  Ordained  deacon,  Lincoln,  1710  Dec.  :  licensed  to  Ickleford 
with  Pirton,  Herts.  Probably  Master  of  Buntingford  School  as  early  as  1728 
(after  England  who  was  still  there  in  1721)  and  as  late  as  1740  :  I  find  his 
successor  instituted  in  1764.     Will.  Sherson,  his  son,  admitted  1739. 

Turner,  John : 

In  residence,  Mids''.  1705,  as  a  pupil  of  M''  Withers.  B.A.  170f.  Probably 
born  9  Sept.  1687  at  Caton  near  Lancaster  (Hunter,  S.  Yorks.  1.  134-5). 
Ordained  priest,  York,  1712  June.  Perhaps  the  John  Turner,  B.A.,  deacon, 
licensed  to  the  cure  of  Ravensfield  Chapel  near  Mexborough  7  Nov.  1709. 
Vicar  of  Braithwell,  near  Rotherham  2  July  1716-66,  when  he  died,  aged  79. 
(Hunter,  ib.)  . 

*Husband,  Thomas : 

Came  into  residence  as  a  pupil  of  M''  Baynes  Oct.  1705.  Matriculated 
sizar  170j.  Scholar  5  Mar.  170-1  B.A.  170|;  M.A.  1712.  Ordained  deacon, 
Lincoln,  1710  Sept.  :  elected  Fellow  in  the  place  of  Will.  Burrell  17  Nov. 
1709.  Junior  Dean,  Catechist  and  Bunting  Preacher  1711.  Steward  1712, 
also  Praelector  (and  omitted  the  entries  of  the  whole  year).  Senior  Dean  1716. 
Mildmay  Preacher  1718.  Nominated  as  Scrutator  29  Aug.  1720.  On  9  April 
1718  he  took  the  lease  of  Hapten  which  Aynsley  resigned  :  he  may  possibly 
have  resided  there,  to  perform  the  duties  of  the  cure,  for  he  signs  the  orders 
afterwards  very  intermittently  :  in  any  case  he  must  have  returned  to  Cam- 
bridge for  the  post  of  Scrutator  1720-1,  and  on  17  April  1721  he  became 
rector  of  Hard  wick.  On  Covel's  death  Aynsley  and  Husband  were  nomi- 
nated to  the  Earl  of  Berkeley  for  the  rectory  of  Kegworth,  and  the  Earl 
selected  Husband;  and  he  was  presented  15  March  172|.  He  died  rector 
before  May  1725.  In  college  he  seems  to  have  joined  Towers  in  opposition  to 
D''  Covel  :  and  supjjorted  him  in  the  struggle  for  Toft  between  Towers  and 
Metcalfe,  when  the  latter  was  taken  :  on  the  curious  ground  that  the  Senior 
Fellow  ought  to  have  it  in  order  to  be  able  to  cope  with  the  Master. 

Martin,  Wormly : 

In  residence  as  a  pupil  of  M''  Baynes  from  Mich".  1705.  Matric''.  sizar 
170|.  Admitted  scholar  5  Mar.  1704'.  Perhaps  a  son  of  Wormly  Martin, 
rector  of  Colveston,  Norf.  1676-85.  Ordained  deacon,  Norwich,  1709  Oct.: 
licensed  to  South  Repps  as  curate  to  his  father,  Wormley  (B.A.  (Jesus) 
1667).  The  father  waged  a  long  battle  with  Corpus  and  Pemb.  Hall  for  a 
fellowship — varying  from  one  to  the  other — backed  up  by  a  mandamus  from  the 
King.  The  evidence  (from  Oaf.  Dom.  Papers)  is  summarised  in  Cooper, 
{Aniials,  5.  451-5)  and  is  entertaining.  Martin  failed  at  both  Colleges. 
Wormley,  junior,  had  dispensation  from  Lambeth   11  July  1716  to  succeed 


1705—1706  163 

his  father  (deprived)  as  rector  of  South  Repps  :  held  it  till  175G  (Blomefield, 
4.  340).  On  the  other  hand  his  gravestone  in  South  llepps  chancel  makes  him 
rector  for  45  years,  i.e.  till  his  death  :  if  so  he  held  it  with  Beeston.  According 
to  Rye  (Cromer,  136)  he  was  also  curate  of  Cromer  1723-9,  and  again  1743. 
Rector  of  Beeston  1756-62  (Blomefield,  4.  293).  Another  Wormly  Martin 
(?his  son)  (B.A.  (Corpus)  1758)  was  also  rector  of  South  Repps,  probably  also 
vicar  of  Shipden  (Cromer)  1763-8,  patron,  the  Bishop  :  he  died  20  May  1768 
(Rye,  ib.).  A  fourth  (his  son)  (B.A.  (Caius)  1790)  was  buried  there  1804, 
aged  38.

Blackburn,  1736-66.     (Abrams,  Blackburn,  696.) 

Fawkener,  Henry :  son  of  Edward,  armiger:  born  at  Uppingham.  School :  Eton,

he  died  unmarried  (1764  in  Burke,  Ext.  Bar.).  Either  he,  or  his  father,  built 
Radnor  House  on  the  Thames,  next  door  to  Pope's  house :  and  he  is  said  to 
be  the  "  heavy  lord,"  satirised  in  the  fourth  Diinciad  as  the  type  of  hanger- 
on  to  wits ;  and  also  as  the  subject  of  Pope's  epigram  beginning  "  My  lord 
complains  that  Pope,  stark  mad  with  gardens  |  Has  lopped  three  trees,  the 
value  of  three-farthings."  The  house  is  now  the  property  of  the  parish  ;  and 
the  Twickenham  Literary  Society  meets  there.     [F.  C.  Hodgson.]

Blanshard,  William :  son  of  Richard  :  born  at  Akam  p  Acomb,  Yorks.]. 
School :  "  Akam,"  under  M''  Tomlinson.  Admitted  sizar  under  M''  Withers

B.A.  17f^.  Admitted  scholar  7  Mar.  170f.  Son  of  Richard  (1674)  of 
the  Inner  Temple.  Ordained  deacon,  York,  1710  Sept.  :  priest  1711  Dec. 
Lecturer  in  the  parish  church  Leeds  14  July  1716. 

Fenwick,  George  :  son  of  George  :  born  at  Morpeth.  School :  Morpeth,  under

B.A.  17f|.  Admitted  scholar  5  Mar.  170|-.  Ordained  priest,  London, 
1715  Sept.  Vicar  of  Bolam,  Northumb''.  1722-70.  There  are  "curious 
memoranda  :  medical  and  historical "  written  by  him  in  the  parish  register. 
(Hodgson,  II.  i.  341.)     Died  27  April  1770,  aged  82. 

Dunn,  John:  [father  not  given].  Of  Yorks.  Admitted  fellow-commoner  under 
M"'  Sherwill  4  June  1706.     Age  not  given. 

His  name  appears  in  the  list  of  M''  Sherwill's  pupils  each  quarter  till 
Lady  Day  1708.  But  each  time  there  is  either  no  charge  again.st  him  or  the 
charge  is  put  in  and  then  struck  out.  Another  [?]  M''  Dunn  {i.e.  fellow- 
commoner)  also  in  Sherwill's  list,  appears  at  Mids'.  1 709  till  Lady  Day  1710:  for 
the  first  two  quarters  there  is  no  charge  against  him  :  in  the  last  quarters  the 
name  itself  is  struck  out.  There  is  no  corresponding  entry  in  the  Admission  book 
for  1 709 — which  seems  complete.  It  is  certain  that  there  was  a  Joshua  Dunn, 
fellow-commoner  at  Christ's  about  this  time  (1707,  according  to  the  Memoir 
of  Sanderson),  who  brought  with  him  as  his  friend  Nicholas  Sanderson,  the 
mathematician  and  future  Lucasian  Professor  (see  Life  of  Sanderson  in  D.N.B. : 
and  Hunter,  F.M.G.  1.  2.t0).  If  the  date  of  Sanderson's  coming  to  Cambridge 
be  rightly  given  (1707)  it  seems  to  follow  that  the  name  in  the  very  imperfect 
entry  of  4  June  1706  is  given  wrongly  as  John,  and  that  it  should  be  Joshua, 
and  that  all  the  entries  in  the  Study-rents  refer  to  one  man.  Joshua  Dunn, 
according  to  Hunter,  was  son  of  Joshua,  mercer,  of  Halifax  and  Attercliffe, 
born  28  Sept.  1684  at  Stannery,  near  Halifax  :  died  13  Sept.  1709 — this  suits 
the  entries  in  the  Study-rents — and  buried  in  the  chancel  of  Halifax  Church: 
M.I.  His  father  was  buried  at  Attercliffe  1718  :  his  mother  was  Mary  Clarke 
(Hunter,  4.  1274).

B.A.  ni{.  He  kept  from  Mich'.  1708  "in  the  Masters  "—therefore  his 
name  is  not  given  in  the  Study-rents — in  "the  next  chamber"  to  that  which

he  was  rector  of  East  Hatley  before  going  to  Hindolveston  :  which  seems 
hardly  probable.  Not  the  Fra.  Say,  Librarian  to  Queen  Caroline,  Secretary  to 
five  Bishops  of  Ely,  who  died  1748  {Gent.  Mag.  p.  427) :  probably  he  was  of

aged  65,  and  buried  at  Cawthorne.  (Hunter,  <S^.  Yorks.  2.  232  :  the  dates  are

there."  He  gave  earlier  £100  to  the  Botanic  Gardens.  This  sum  with  the 
accumulated  interest  amounted  in  1788  to  X745.  18«.  id.  :  which  was  paid  by 
the  trustees  of  the  will  to  the  Vice-Chancellor  to  be  used  toward  the  erec-

by  M''  Staniforth  in  Latin  and  Greek  ;  afterwards  by  his  father  and  by  himself 
in  mathematics  :  in  later  life  he  could  repeat  all  Horace's  Odes  and  much  other 
Latin  poetry  :  his  father  and  friends  supported  him  till  he  was  25.     Came 
to  Cambridge  in   1707   as  friend  of   Joshua  Dunn  then  fellow-commoner  at 
Christ's  :  see  Dunn,  John  (!  Joshua),  1706.     Not  admitted  at  the  College,  but 
allowed  rooms  there  :    perhaps  Dunn's,  who  seems  to  have  resided  irregularly. 
Made  friends  through  his  keenness  for  mathematics — especially  as  expounded 
by  Newton — and  through  his  blindness.     Will.  Whiston,  Lucasian  Professor, 
allowed  him  to  lecture  in  his  own  subjects:  his  lectures  seem  to  have  been  very 
popular.     In  the  dedication  (1740)  of  his  Algebra  to  John  Robartes  (170|) 
afterwards  Earl  of  Radnor,  it  is  said  "  Your  Lordship  was  his  first  acquaint- 
ance in  the  University  and  his  first  scholar,  and. ..his  most  generous  benefactor: 
a  great  part  of  the  work  was  drawn  up  originally  for  your  Lordships  use,  and 
was  for  many  years  in  your  sole  ])OSsession."     When  Whiston  was  removed 
from   his  Professorship  (30  Oct.   1710)  for  his  Ariau  proclivities,  Sanderson 
seems  to  have  been  regarded  as  his  obvious  successor  :  but  he  lacked  the  M.A. 
degree.     The  Heads  of  Colleges,  and  the  Hon.  Francis  Robartes  (1663)  father 
of  John  Robartes  are  said  in  the  Alemoir  (p.  vi)  to  have  applied  to  the  Chan- 
cellor for  a  mandate-degree  for  him  :    which   was  issued   by  the  Queen :   he 
became  M.A.    19   Nov.    1711,   and    Lucasian  Professor  the  next   day!     His 
inaugural  lecture  was  in  "  truly  Ciceronian  "  Latin.     His  position  as  an  early 
"Newtonian"  is  attested  by  D''  Heberden,  writing  of  what  he  remembered 
about  1730,  "  Newton  Euclid  and  Algebra  were  only  known  to  those  who  chose 
to  attend  tiie  lectures  of  Pr'of.  Sanderson,  for  the  College  lecturers  were  silent 
on  them."    [Schol.  Acad.  66.)     He  lived  in  College  till  1723  devoting  his  whole 
time  to  his  lectures  and  his  pupils.     In  that  year  he  took  a  house  in  Cambridge 
and  married  Abigail,  daughter  of  Will.  Dickons,  rector  of  Boxsvorth:  by  whom 
he  had  children,  John  (1742)  and  Anne.      He  continued  his  teaching  to  the 
detriment  of  his  health  :    "  being  too  sedentary  and  constantl}'  confining  him- 
self to  the  house,  he  became  a  valetudinarian  of  a  very  scorbutic  habit "  and 
died  19  Apr.  1739  "  of  a  mortification  in  his  foot."    Buried  at  Boxworth:  M.I. 
Portrait  by  Vanderbanck  (painted  1718)  in  the  University  Library.     He  had 
prepared  his  Algebra  for  the  Press  before  his  death  :    and  it  was  published  in 
1740  by  ills  widdw  and  children.     The  Method  of  Fluxions  appeared  in  1751. 
It  is  said  (see  Ball,  History  of  Mathematics,  87)  that  owing  to  his  outspokenness 


1707—1708  169 

he  was  "  better  qualified  to  inspire  admiration  than  to  make  or  retain  friends." 
Among  the  friends  who  contributed  to  the  Memoir  prefixed  to  his  Algebra, 
were  John  Boldero  and  Gervase  Wheler  of  Christ's.  Many  other  members  of 
the  College  were  among  the  subscribers  to  tiie  book  ;  also  the  libraries  of 
almost  every  college  in  Cambridge,  except  (oddly)  Christ's.  (D.N.B.)  His 
son  John  (1742)  was  B.A.  at  Christ's,  afterwards  Fellow  of  Poterhouse.

tlesey St  Mary  1718  :  priest  1719  May.  Praelector,  Junior  Dean,  Catechist, 
Bunting  Preacher  and  Steward  1721  :  but  in  Dec.  1721  he  foruially  resigns 
tlie  last  office,  and  I  find  his  signature  only  once  more  (in  1724)  :  he  was 
private  chaplain  to  the  Duke  of  Somerset — and,  as  such,  was  probably  subject 
to  the  "  detentio  violenta  "  which  according  to  an  interpretation  of  the  Statute 
prevented  residence  :  his  pupils — he  had  a  few — cease  at  the  same  date.  In

York  28  Nov.  1747  :  Archbishop  of  Canterbury  13  Apr.  1757.  He  died  in 
Duke  Street,  Westminster  18  March  1758  having  held  his  final  preferment  less 
than  one  year  :  buried  in  Lambeth  church.  He  seems  hardly  to  have  been  a 
great  man,  tiiough  so  highly  placed  :  he  is  said  to  have  been  "  ciieerful  and 
amiable  "  and  he  "never  let  himself  down  below  the  dignity  of  an  archbishop." 


1710—1711  177 

In  opinions  he  was  supposed  to  be  latitudinarian  (D.N.B.).  He  married  in 
173|  Mary  Lutman  of  Petworth:  by  whom  he  had  two  daughtei-s  (Hasted  says, 
sons).  Two  nephews  (sons  of  his  elder  brother  John  of  Marske)  were  at

John  the  third,  John  (1791)  and  Timothy  (1796)  benefactors  to  the  Library.  He

*Finch,  Henry :  fourth  son  of  Daniel,  Earl  of  Nottingham  :  born  at  Exton,  Ruts. 
School :  Eton,  under  M''  Newborough.  Admitted  fellow-commoner  "omnibus 
felicissimi  ingenii  dotibus  instructissimus,"  under  M'  Boldero  19  Aug.  1712. 
Age  17. 

M.A.  1714.  Elder  brother  of  Edward  Finch  (Hatton),  Fellow  1728-46. 
Nominated  by  his  father  a  Fellow  on  the  Finch  and  Baines  foundation  30  Sept. 
1713 — before  he  had  taken  his  degree.  He  was  a  candidate  for  the  repre- 
sentation of  the  University  in  Parliament  in  December  1720,  when  he  was 
defeated  by  the  Hon.  Tho.  VVilloughby.  He  succeeded  elsewhere  before  1736 
when  (on  June  7)  the  Master,  D''  Towers,  declared  his  Fellowship  vacant. 
Finch  appealed  and  on  19  June  1736  the  Master  had  to  report  that  D''  Adams, 
V.C.,  with  his  assessors  D''  Colbatch  and  D''  Gooch  had  reinstated  M"'  Finch. 
The  ground  as  stated  in  the  V.C.'s  sentence  was  that  the  Master  had  "amoved 
him  from  his  Fellowship  without  any  summons  or  notice,  without  his  being 
first  heard  and  without  assigning  any  cause  "  (Master's  Book  of  Statutes). 
From  an  account  in  Adam  Wall's  mss.  (Univ.  Lib.  Mm  v.  48,  p.  64)  it  appears 
that  Towers  ejected  him  (1)  because  he  was  non-resident — he  was  actually 
H.M.  Receiver  General  at  Minorca  and  resided  there  regularly  :  (2)  because 
he  was  M.P.  which  implied  property  more  than  was  permissible  to  a  Fellow. 
There  was  a  curious  dispute  as  to  the  action  of  the  V.C  In  Finch's  appeal 
it  was  stated  that  he  had  been  ejected  "without  consent  of  the  Fellows."  In 
Atherton's  copy  of  the  Statutes  there  is  a  note  to  the  sentence  "these  or  the 
like  words  were  after  some  debate  inserted  in  the  place  [after  the  words 
"  without  assigning  any  cause  "]  as  they  stood  in  M''  Finch's  appeal,  and  very 
solemnly  agreed  to  by  the  V.C.  and  both  his  assessors  in  Sidney  Lodge,  but 
afterwards  were  in  a  fraudulent  and  clandestine  manner  struck  out  by  the 
V.C.  alone  [prolsably  on  the  instigation  of  D''  Towers]  and  the  sentence  signed 
inadvertently  by  the  senior  Doctor  as  above."  They  do  not  appear  in  the 
sentence  in  the  Master's  copy  of  the  Statutes,  where  it  was  required  to  be 
entered.  M"^  Finch  despite  his  non-residence  held  his  Fellowship  for  36  years 
and  resigned  it  by  letter  to  the  Master,  D""  Rooke,  7  Oct.  1749. 

*Hunt,  Daniel :  son  of  Thomas  :  born  at  Exton,  Ruts.  School :  Oakham,  under 
M"-  Wright.     Admitted  sizar  under  M--  Boldero  19  Aug.  1712.     Age  17. 

B.A.  171f-;  M.A.  1720.  Admitted  scholar,  3  Nov.  1712.  It  may  be  in- 
ferred that  he  was  brought  up  by  Henry  Finch.  Elected  Fellow,  succeeding 
John  Chester  2  Feb.  1719.  Ordained  deacon,  Peterborough,  1719  Sept.  : 
priest,  Ely,  1719.    In  1720  there  came  a  mandate  that  Dan.  Hunt  should  enjoy 


1712—1713  181 

liis  Fellowship  while  acting  as  chaplain  to  M'  Finch,  envoy  to  Sweden  in  1720 
(Misc.  drawer,  Ak).  I  do  not  know  what  M''  Finch  this  is.  Whether  in 
Sweden  or  after  return  to  England,  M"'  Hunt  died  before  Oct.  1723. 

At  this  point  there  is  a  gap  in  the  Admissions  from  Aug.  1712  to  Sept. 
1714.  Five  leaves  in  the  book  are  left  blank.  The  Praelectors  were  for  the  first 
year,  Thomas  Husband,  for  the  second  Ben.  Dowse.  Each  was  in  residence 
and  acted  as  Steward  for  the  year.  The  register  of  matriculations  gives  the 
names  of  all  who  were  admitted  except  two,  Bellasis  and  Conder,  who  were 
not  matriculated,  but  appear  in  the  Study-rents  only.

yeares  :  and  I  will  vouch  him  for  a  sober  and  civil  person  ;  as  for  his  learning 
he  is  of  age  and  I  doubt  not  but  he  will  be  able  to  answer  for  himself;  yet  I 
must  confess  he  may  want  a  month  of  '23  yeares  of  age.  But  give  me  leave 
thus  humbly  to  apologize  for  him  ;  some  men  grow  Men  very  early  :  some

have  been  vicar  of  Broughton,  Yorks.  1727  :  but  according  to  Morant-Whitaker 
(Craven,  110)  a  John  Hewitt  was  vicar  from  1732-41,  when  he  died. 


Here  conies  another  gap  in  the  Admission  books  for  the  years  1717-18 
(praelector  Henry  Finch,  the  very  juvenile  Finch  and  Baines  Fellow)  and 
1718-19  (praelector,  John  Chester,  who  married  Feb.  171f).  The  numbers  in 
both  years  recoverable  from  the  matriculation-register  are  very  small :  but  the

198  CHRIST'S   COLLEGE 

*Monoux,  Lewis :  son  of  Lewis,  armiger :  born  at  Sandy,  Beds.  School : 
Stortford,  under  D'  Tooke.  Admitted  pensioner  under  M'  Atherton  27  Apr.

Granville  Wheler)  22  Jan.  172i.  Ordained  deacon,  Lincoln,  1728  June: 
priest,  September.  Praelector  (and  a  most  careless  one — he  left  out  half  the 
entries),  Junior  Dean,  Catechist,  Bunting  Preacher  and  Steward  1728. 
Fellowship  declared  vacant  31  Dec.  1730.  Rector  of  Sandy,  Beds.  Chaplain 
to  the  Bishop  of  Llandaff.  Had  dispensation  from  Lambeth  21  June  1743  to 
hold  also  the  rectory  of  Tenipsfoixl,  distant  two  miles.  Prebendary  of  Lincoln 
(Clifton)  21  Oct.  1755.  Married  a  Miss  Edwards  of  Bedford,  by  whom  he 
had  a  sou  Philip  (1752),  who  by  a  curious  history  became  seventh  (and  last) 
baronet. 

Anesley,  Mark :  son  of  William,  armiger :  born  at  Gallowhill,  Northumb''. 
School :  Morpeth,  under  M''  Carey.  Admitted  pensioner  under  his  uncle 
M''  Anesley  9  May  1720.     Age  not  given. 

Admitted  scholar  (Ansley)  8  May  1721.  Perhaps  he  shared  his  uncle's 
room  :  as  he  does  not  appear  in  the  Study-rents  till  Mich.  1722  when  he  is 
found  as  a  fellow-commoner  "  iu  the  Star  Chamber" — till  Mids''.  1723.  He  ran 
through  his  patrimony:  in  1750  "High  and  Low  Gallowhill,  Foumertlaw,  and 
the  colliery  and  limestone  quarry  on  the  estate  were  sold  to  M''  Cook  of 
Thockeriugton  under  a  decree  of  the  Court  of  Chancery  for  the  payment  of 
the  debts  of  Mark  Aynsley  Esq.,  deceased."  (Hodgson,  Northumberland  ll. 
1.  343.) 

*Mabell,  William. :  son  of  John  :  born  at  Newcastle.  School :  Newcastle,  under 
M"' Lodge.     Admitted  sizar  under  M'' Atherton  11  May  1720.     Age  17. 

B.A.  172|;  M.A.  1727.  Ordained  deacon,  Rochester  (for  Durham),  1725 
Dec.  Admitted  scholar  8  May  1721.  Resided  till  Mich.  1728  :  although  on 
20  Jan.  172  J  he  received  a  lease  of  the  tithes  of  Hapton  for  seven  years  with 
"  additional  covenants  "  (he  not  being  a  Fellow)  viz.  "  that  he  resides  upon  the 
Place  and  serves  the  Cure  in  Person,  or  that  he  shall  appoint  a  Curate  who 
shall  be  approved  by  the  Ordinary  and  the  College,  and  that  during  this  terra 
lie  shall  not  accept  of  any  Preferment  or  Cure  beyond  the  distance  of  5  miles." 
Apparently  he  had  a  curate.  On  17  Oct.  1727  he  was  appointed  Rhetorick 
Lecturer:  but  there  is  no  evidence  that  he  resided.  In  1733  Atherton's 
Northumberland  fellowship  was  vacant  and  on  8  June  1733  Mabell  was 
elected  Fellow,  but  not  admitted  till  August  9 — an  indication  that  he  was  not 
in  residence.  He  signs  only  thrice  as  a  Fellow.  On  8  May  1735  "the 
Master  declared  M''  Mabell's  Fellowship  void — he  not  being  a  Priest  as  the 
Statutes  prescribe."  Against  this  sentence  M''  Mabell  appealed  on  May  22  to 
D''  Andrew  Snape,  Provost  of  King's  and  Visitor,  the  Master  being  Vice- 
Chancellor  for  the  year.  On  12  Sept.  in  the  same  year  "  M'  Thomas 
acquainted  the  Master  that  he  had  received  a  letter  from  M''  Mabell's  brother 
informing  them  that  he  was  dead."

Derbs.,  under  M''  Drake.  Admitted  pensioner  under  M''  Hutton  7  June  1720. 
Age  not  given. 

B.A.  1724.  Admitted  scholar  8  May  1721,  as  of  Lines.;  probably  he  was 
born  at  Binbrooke  of  which  his  father  (adm''.  1688)  was  vicar  from  1699  to 


1720  199 

about  1704.     He  resided  till  Lady  Day  1726.     His  younger  brother,  Charles, 
admitted  1730.

fordrain  [?  Pulford],  Cheshire.  School  not  given.  Admitted  sizar  under

School:  Northampton,  under  M''  Styles.  Admitted  sizar  under  M''  Atherton 
14  June  1720.     Age  19. 

B.A.  172f;  M.A.  1727;  incorporated  Oxford  1728.  Admitted  scholar 
8  May  1721.  Elected  Fellow,  succeeding  Tho.  Husband  27  Apr.  1724. 
Ordained  deacon,  Lincoln,  1725  March;  also  priest.  Praelector,  Junior 
Dean,  Walkhampton  Preacher,  and  Steward,  1726.  Bunting  Preacher  1727. 
Knapwell  Preacher  1728.  Senior  Dean  1732.  Senior  Greek  Lecturer  and 
Mildmay  Preacher  1733,  1734.  Senior  Dean  1736.  Taxor  in  the  University 
1728.  Scrutator  1737.  Had  a  few  pupils  from  1737.  Presented  by  the 
Crown  to  the  vicarage  of  Astwood,  Bucks.,  on  the  decease  of  his  father 
Robert,  by  dispensation  from  Lambeth  8  Aug.  1726  :  his  succe.ssor  was  not 
appointed  till  1752  (Lipscombe,  4.  6):  but  it  is  quite  clear  that  he  resided 
at  Cambridge  till  12  March  1742  when  he  resigned  his  Fellowship.  He 
was  appointed  curate  of  Fen  Drayton  2  Jul}'  1733,  and  held  the  curacy 
till  he  left  Cambridge  for  Astwood.  Cole  mentions  him  as  "  a  large,  raw- 
boned  jolly  man  who  loved  good  eating  and  drinking  :  I  think  had  the  living 
of  Astwood  in  Bucks,  and  died  a  young  man,  of  no  very  good  character":  as 
Cole  is  wide  of  the  mark  as  to  his  age  when  he  died  (if  he  died  in  1752),  we 
may  hope  he  was  also  as  to  his  character. 

Byam,  William :  son  of  William  ;  born  at  Antegoa  [Antigua].  School  :  West- 
minster, under  D''  Friend.  Admitted  pensioner  under  M''  Atherton  21  June 
1720.     Age  17. 

B.A.  i72f.  Admitted  scholar  (as  of  Middlesex)  8  May  I72L  Admitted 
at  Gray's  Inn  20  Aug.  1722  as  from  "  Christ  Church,"  Cambridge.  He  returned 
to  Antigua  and  died  there  childless.  According  to  Oliver's  Histori/  of  Antigua 
which  gives  very  careful  pedigrees  there  was  a  second  Will.  Byam  at  Christ's 
at  this  time  :  the  sou  of  Edward  Byam  and  Lydia  Martin,  brother  of  Francis 
(1726)  and  half-brother  of  Edward  (1708).  He  may  have  been  admitted  in 
one  of  the  missing  years,  1717-19,  and  never  matriculated:  but  I  do  not 
lind  him  in  the  Stud3'-rents  and  I  suspect  that  for  once  the  Historij  is  wrong. 
This  Will,  was  of  Byams,  Antigua  and  of  Westborne  House,  Paddington, 
Midds.  :  a  Colonel  in  the  army  and  a  Member  of  the  Council  of  Antigua. 
He  married  Anne,  daughter  of  Col.  John  Gunthorpe  of  Antigua  :  died  at 
Barbuda  26  Sept.  1755  and  was  buried  at  Antigua  (Hint.  1.  98).  A  son

curate  of  Charleton  (or  elsewhere  in  the  diocese  of  Rochester)  10  Oct.  1724  : 
with  stipend  of  £30.  Vicar  of  Bradfield,  Essex.  Had  dispensation  14  April 
1729  to  hold  also  the  vicarage  of  Acton,  Suffolk,  distant  18  miles.  Held  it 
till  1774,  when,  I  suppose,  he  died. 

Hutchinson,  Edward :  [father  not  given] :  born  at  Clipston,  Northants. 
School  not  given.  Admitted  sizar  under  M''  Atherton  7  July  1720.  Age 
not  given. 

Admitted  scholar  8  May  1721.  Resided  till  Mich.  1723.  Probably  father 
of  Thomas  (1755)  who  was  born  at  Clipston. 

Gaines,  William  Langhome:  no  facts.     Admitted  19  July  1720. 

He  was  a  fellow-commoner,  pupil  of  M''  Atherton  :  and  resided  till  Lady 
Day  1722.  One  of  these  names  was  lord  of  the  manor  of  Hampstead,  and 
died  1732  {Gent.  Mag.). 

Clennell,  Thomas  :  [father  not  given] :  of  Clennell,  Northumberland.  School : 
Alnwick,  under  M'  Walton.  Admitted  pensioner  under  M''  Atherton  1 2  Sept. 
1720.     Age  19. 

Resided  till  Mids.  1722.  Clennel  is  near  Harbottle,  which  the  family 
seem  to  have  owned.  Perhaps  the  Tho.  Clennell  who  died  at  Lilburn, 
Northumberland  1763  {Gent.  Mag.). 

Preston,  John  :  [father  not  given] :  of  Yorks.  School:  Giggleswick.  Admitted 
sizar  under  M'  Atherton  29  Oct.  1720.     Age  not  given.

given.     Admitted  sizar  under  M''  Cockshutt  31  Oct.  1720.     Age  not  given. 

B.A.  1724.  Admitted  scholar  8  May  1721.  I  think  that  Marwood  is  a 
miscopying  by  a  careless  Praelector  of  Harwood.  John  Barlow,  born  at 
Harwood  near  Blackburn  and  educated  at  Glasgow  was  incumbent  of  Colne, 
Lanes.  1709-1727,  when  he  died  on  April  9  :  and  his  son  Thomas  was 
presented  to  the  living,  but  survived  his  father  only  three  weeks  :  he  was 
buried  at  Colne  5  May  1727.  (Whitaker,  Whalley,  2.  249.)  Perhaps  he  is 
the  Tho.  Barlow  who  was  curate  of  Radcliffe,  Manchester  on  25  Nov.  1726. 
{Lives  of  Felloivs  and  of  the  College  of  Manchester,   ii.   224.)

dained  deacon,  Lincoln,  1726  June;  licensed  to  St  Mary,  Retford:  priest, 
1727  Sept.  Elected  Fellow,  in  place  of  M''  Edwards,  14  Jan.  1721:.  Prae-

Steward  1730.  Senior  Deau  1734.  Senior  Greek  Lecturer  and  Mildmay 
Preacher  1737.  Was  appointed  Hebrew  Lecturer  (not  an  annual  appointment) 
14  Nov.  1727.  Ceased  to  sign  after  May  1730.  Presented  by  the  University 
to  Greystoke,  Cumberland  1737 — but  owing  to  a  dispute  as  to  the  title,  not 
instituted  till  1  June  1739  :  in  1739  he  left  Cambridge.  While  resident  he 
took  pupils  1729-39,  but  Cartwright  (and  afterwards  Trant)  had  many  more: 
also  he  was  one  of  the  four  editors  of  Stephens'  Thesaurus.  Resigned  his 
Fellowship  14  June  1740  and  on  June  24  married  Mary  Cliristian  of  Unerigg. 
Rector  of  Salkeld  and  Archdeacon  of  Carlisle  21  Apr.  1743-56.  Master  of 
Peterhouse  (by  the  support  of  Bp.  Keene,  later  Master)  1756-1787.  In  1756, 
E.  Pyle  wrote  (Memoirs  of  a  Royal  Chaplain,  page  280)  that  Law  had  "quite 
won  the  heart  of  the  Duke  of  Newcastle  by  the  last  Cambridge  Address... and 
the  Duke  has  assured  him  of  his  Majesty's  favour  in  a  very  handsome  letter 
which  I  have  seen... .So  D''  Law  will  be  L.  Marg.  Professor."  Such  were 
the  ways  of  the  time.  But  Prof.  D'  Newcome  had  nine  years  more  of  it. 
Knightbridge  Professor  1764-9.  Prebendary  of  Lichfield  (Sandiacre)  and 
Archdeacon  of  Stafford  1763-69  (collated  by  Bp.  Cornwallis,  his  old  pupil) : 
of  Lincoln  1764  and  of  Durham  1767.  Bishop  of  Carlisle  24  Feb.  176|, 
retaining  the  Mastership  (he  resided  at  Cambridge  in  term  time  and  at  Rose 
Castle  in  the  Long  Vacation) — also  the  rectory  of  Greystoke  but  he  resigned 
everything  else.  Died  at  Rose  Castle  14  Aug.  1787 :  buried  in  Carlisle 
Cathedral  (M.L).  Of  his  four  sons,  John  was  admitted  1762,  afterwards 
Fellow,  and  Bishop  of  Clonfert  and  of  Elphin.  The  appreciation  of  him  by 
Paley,  which  is  well  known,  is  printed  in  the  Johnian  Adiii'^.  Book,  p.  332,  by 
R.  F.  Scott.  It  dwells  on  his  cheerfulness,  gentleness  (to  a  fault  when  found 
in  a  Bishop),  candour  and  love  of  liberty.  "  He  was  zealously  attached  to 
religious  liberty,  because  he  thought  that  it  leads  to  truth  ;  but  from  his  heart 
he  loved  peace."  He  valued  his  Bishopric  chiefly  as  a  proof  that  in  England 
"decent  freedom  of  enquiry  was  not  discouraged."  A  full  list  of  his  works  is 
given  by  R.  F.  Scott  (supra).  His  book  Considerations  of  the  State  of  the 
World  -with  regard  to  the  Theory  of  Religion,  published  1745,  works  out  the 
view  that  revelation  is  progressive — so  much  being  given  at  each  time  as  men 
are  able  to  receive.  When  a  Bishop  in  1774  he  boldly  supported  the  attempt 
to  abolish,  or  relax  subscription  to  the  formularies  of  the  church  :  first  started 
by  Archdeacon.  Blackburne,  two  years  earlier :  Law  both  preached  at  St 
Mary's  "a  noble  sermon,"  and  also  published  a  pamphlet  Considerations  on 
the  Propriety  of  requiring  subscription  to  Articles  of  Faith,  which  gave  rise  to 
some  controversy.  His  last  publication  was  his  edition  of  John  Locke's  works 
in  three  volumes.  (Baker-Mayor,  Hist,  of  St  John's:  D.N.B. :  St  John's 
Admission  Book  (ut  supra).)

1721  205 

Preacher  1740.  Licensed  to  Great  Eversdeu  18  Sept.  1732.  Vicar  of  Little 
Abington  6  Apr.  1736  :  but  resigned  before  June  1737.  Vicar  of  Foxton 
7  Mar.  173|-.  Had  a  lease  of  Hapton  tithes  for  three  years,  Mich.  1739. 
Rector  of  Hadstock,  Essex,  1740.  Proctor  1741-2.  From  1742  to  1744  he 
signs  rarely  and  perhaps  resided  at  Hadstock.  On  1  March  174i  D''  Towers 
the  Master  died,  and  Rooke  was  elected  his  successor  :  each  was  a  Whig  ;  but 
the  tirst  was  quite  free  from  self-seeking  :  the  College  was  prevailingly  Whig 
in  the  first  half  of  the  century  :  the  election  of  D''  Thomas  in  17.54  marks  the 
turn  of  the  tide.  D""  Rooke  was  V.C  174-5-6.  As  such  he  presented  the  address 
to  the  King  on  the  suppression  of  the  Jacobite  rebellion,  including  "  the  ad- 
mirable conduct  and  heroick  bravery  "  of  the  Duke  of  Cumberland.  He  was 
"one  of  the  most  managing  persons  among  the  Heads"  (Cole).  He  had  sup- 
ported the  Duke  of  Newcastle  in  the  contest  for  the  High  Stewardship  in  1737  : 
and  supported  him  again  when  he  succeeded  the  Duke  of  Somerset  in  1748  as 
Chancellor  of  the  University.  He  wrote  one  of  the  official  poems  on  the  death 
of  George  I  and  accession  of  George  II.  On  30  April  1747  he  had  a  dispensa- 
tion from  Lambeth  to  hold  the  rectory  of  Great  Horkesley  (near  Colchester) 
as  well  as  Hadstock,  distant  25  miles.  On  1  June  1749  he  became  Prebendary 
of  Lincoln:  and  on  23  Nov.  1751  Prebendary  of  Bristol,  on  the  presentation 
of  Lord  Chancellor  Hardwick  "  to  whose  brother  he  had  offered  an  Honorary 
Fellowship  "  (1  but  so  Cole).  He  spent  much  money  on  the  Lodge,  into  which 
lodgers  were  no  longer  received,  as  in  the  days  of  Cudworth  and  Cove),  and 
(to  a  less  degree)  of  Towers.  Even  Cole  allowed  that  "  he  fitted  up  the  Lodge 
in  elegant  and  good  taste  "  :  he  persuaded  the  Fellows  to  let  him  have  the  old 
"  Parlour  "  to  be  (as  it  has  ever  since  been)  the  Master's  dining  room.  He 
never  married.  He  died,  suddenly,  in  College  7  Feb.  1754,  aged  51  :  and  was 
buried  at  Hadstock.  He  incurred  the  special  hatred  of  Cole,  whose  description 
of  him  as  "  universally  disesteemed  by  all  sorts  of  people  and  all  sorts  of 
parties"  is  vigorous  :  "he  had  the  usual  concomitants  of  hautine.ss,  meanness 
and  servility  to  an  expi-essible  degree,  being  the  most  abject  slave  and  fawning 
sycophant  that  I  ever  saw,"  "  from  his  tirst  admission  an  abject  and  servile 
ilatter  of  young  noblemen  and  fellow  commoners."  Cole's  account  probably 
needs  to  be  discounted  :  the  last  part  may  mean  little  more  than  that  his 
pupils  were  drawn  from  this  class.  But  it  is  probable  that  he  was  "  unamiable 
and  of  rough  manners"  (Welch,  Al.  Westinonasterienses).  He  was  cei'tainly 
unpopular  in  the  L^niversity :  for  the  numerous  attacks  on  him  in  the 
Capitade  and  in  other  pamphlets,  see  my  History  of  Christ's  College,  and 
Wordsworth,  Univ.  Life  in  the  ISth  Century.  When  V.C.  he  proposed  to  the 
Senate  to  employ  the  surplus  of  money  raised  to  suppress  the  rebellion  of  1745 
for  some  purpose  which  the  Senate  rejected,  and  (according  to  Cole)  rejected 
all  other  graces  during  his  term  of  office.  For  the  Orders  and  Regulations 
for  the  government  of  the  University  .sent  down  by  the  Chancellor  in  1750, 
at  the  instigation  as  was  supposed  of  D''  Rooke,  D"'  Keene  of  Peterhouse,  and 
D''  Chapman  (admitted  here  1734,  afterwards  Master  of  Magdalene),  and  for 
the  tumult  caused  by  them  see  Wordsworth,  ih.  64-77.  Though  unwisely  con- 
ceived they  must  be  regarded  as  an  attempt  at  reform  which  was  really  needed. 
Rooke  should  also  be  credited  with  the  introduction  of  "  examinations " — 
probably  slight  enough,  and  soon  becoming  a  dead  letter^which  occur  first  in 
the  orders  made  in  his  Mastership :  probably  he  brought  the  idea  from  Trinity 
where  Bentley  had  introduced  them.  According  to  E.  Pyle  {Memoirs  of  a 
Royal  Chaplain,  p.  158) — a  well-informed  man — D''  Rooke  made  so  much 
interest  for  the  Divinity  Professorship,  vacant  1748  that  Green  of  St  John's 
who  was  actually  elected  could  not  promise  enough  without  "  making  interest 
above  to  get  a  promise  made  to  Rook  that  pleased  him  as  well  as  the 
Professorship,  for  which  he  is  not  fit."

Mildmay  Preacher  1741  and  1742.  University  Taxor  1736-7.  Scrutator 
1743-4.  Took  pupils  from  1738-45,  together  with  M'  Makin  :  but  the  whole 
number  was  not  great.  In  1740  had  a  lease  of  the  Manor  and  rectory  of 
Gateley,  which  he  held  till  1750.  During  1745  and  1746  he  signs  irregularly  : 
in  October  1747  for  the  last  time  :  in  that  year  he  was  presented  by  the 
Chapter  of  Southwell  to  the  vicarage  of  RoUeston,  Notts,  but  not  instituted 
till  20  Sept.  1749  :  by  College  Order  28  July  1749  he  was  to  hold  Gateley  as 
well  as  Rolleston  if  the  Bishop  consented  :  apparently  the  Bishop  did  not : 
Thomas  resigned  Gateley  the  next  year.  On  30  Sept.  1748  he  became  Arch- 
deacon of  Nottingham,  and  Prebendar}'  of  Southwell  29  June  1749.  On 
30  Oct.  1749  he  resigned  his  Fellowship  having  had  "a  full  j'ear's  possession 
of  the  Archdeaconry."  He  held  a  Prebend  at  York  from  Dec.  1749  to  July 
1750.  In  1750  he  became  Chancellor  of  York,  and  rector  of  Wheldrake, 
Yorks.  (worth  £140)  :  he  was  chaplain  to  the  Archbishop,  and  liad  dispensa- 
tion 23  Nov.  1751  to  hold  also  the  rectory  of  Etton,  distant  16  miles,  worth 
£130.  When  D'  Rooke  died  suddenly  Thomas  was  recalled  to  Cambridge  to 
be  Master  of  the  College  :  and  held  the  Mastership  from  18  Feb.  175|  for 
26  years.  In  1754  he  was  Vice-Chancellor  :  and  was  again  elected  in  1777 
when  he  was  more  than  70  years  old  :  he  declined  to  serve  on  the  ground  of 
health,  and  was  excused  by  grace  from  payment  of  a  mulct  of  £100.  On 
2  Dec.  his  successor  was  appointed.  He  became  Dean  of  Ely  15  July  1758, 
and  is  genei-ally  referred  to  for  the  next  22  years  as  "  Dean  Thomas."  I  think 
that  he  held  all  these  preferments,  but  one,  till  his  death  in  1780  :  even  Cole, 
who  liked  both  the  man  and  his  politics  (opposed  to  the  Whiggery  of  his  two 


1724—1725  209 

predecessors)  thought  it  remarkable:  "he  Hves  snugly  and  handsomely  ami 
has  provided  monej'  for  a  growing  family."  Cole  says  that  he  declined  the 
Bishopric  of  Carlisle  in  1769  when  Edm.  Law  of  Christ's  was  appointed — 
Gray,  writing  to  Mason  29  Dec.  1768,  says  that  he  had  been  appointed:  a 
further  story  that  Law  persuaded  Thomas  to  refuse  it,  in  order  that  he  might 
have  it  himself,  seems  to  rest  on  the  constant  statement  of  M'*  Thomas  : 
Cole  (who  did  not  love  Law)  does  not  seem  to  have  believed  it :  and  says 
that  the  Archbishop  Cornwallis  (also  of  Christ's)  recommended  both.  He 
married  (1)  Miss  Metcalfe,  daughter  of  the  rector  of  Toft:  she  was  buried 
there  17  June  17.54 — and  two  children  in  1756  and  1758  ;  (2)  Miss  Grigson 
of  Pembrokeshire.  He  died  at  the  Lodge,  rather  suddenly,  11  July  1780 — 
and  was  buried  privately  in  the  centre  of  the  ante-chapel,  in  the  evening,  six 
Fellows  bearing  the  pall  (Cole).  In  Cole's  words,  he  was  "  always  esteemed  a 
very  worthy  man  "  :  and  he  clearly  was  popular  with  all  men.  He  certainly 
did  not  encourage  reform  in  the  College  :  but  acquiesced  in  it  when  urged  by 
the  young  Fellows,  Will.  Paley  and  John  Law.

210  CHRIST'S   COLLEGE 

M.A.  (com.  rey.)  1728:  why,  I  cannot  understand:  unless  interest  was 
made  in  liis  favour  in  view  of  the  following  matter.  Early  in  1729  M'  Simp- 
son's fellowship  was  declared  vacant,  the  Master  and  five  Fellows  wished  to 
elect  Alderson  :  there  being  no  majority  the  appointment  went  to  the  Visitor, 
who  on  8  Feb.  172f  appointed  John  Jebb  formerly  of  St  John's  (whom  see). 
On  5  Feb.  Alderson  petitioned  the  Visitor,  while  his  decision  was  still  pend- 
ing, on  the  ground  that  Jebb  had  no  "natural  claim.'  (He  had  migrated  as 
a  B.A.  from  St  John's  before  the  end  of  1728,  doubtless  on  the  motion  of  some 
of  the  Fellows  in  order  to  keep  Alderson  out  of  a  Fellow.ship.)  He  com- 
plained that  he  had  been  injured  in  the  estimation  of  the  Society  by  divers 
slanderous  reports.  His  petition  was  supported  by  the  Master,  by  Cartwright 
(his  tutor)  and  by  Wilkinson,  Harwell,  Neville  and  Trant  :  the  opponents 
must  have  been  Atherton,  Raye,  Sitwell,  Chamberlayne,  Monoux,  Edm.  Law 
and  G.  H.  Rooke.  As  above  mentioned  Jebb  was  appointed  by  the  Visitor, 
Frankland,  V.C.,  with  Bentley  and  Ashton  as  assessors.  It  is  odd  that  Neville, 
under  whom  Jebb  had  been  entered,  supported  Alderson.  Still  more  odd  is 
the  fact  that  Alderson  never  took  the  ordinary  B.A.  degree  but  was  admitted 
M.A.  in  1728  (as  mentioned  above),  half  a  year  before  the  election,  though 
neither  by  birth  nor  by  merit  could  he  have  any  claim  to  it.  In  the  Study- 
rents  he  appears  as  late  as  Sept.  1731  as  a  pupil  of  Cartwright.  Alderson 
purged  his  character  to  the  Society,  for  in  1731  when  Wilkinson  died,  he  was 
elected  Fellow  17  Nov.  1731  and  was  admitted  26  Nov.,  a  fact  which  implies 
that  he  was  not  in  residence.  In  1732  he  resided.  In  173|  (10  July)  he  was 
instituted  vicar  of  Burgh  Wallis,  near  Doncaster  :  which  he  held  till  his  death, 
1754  :  he  was  buried  there,  Dec.  20.     (Hunter,  S.  Forks.  2.  486.)

B.A.  17f|;  M.A.  1733.  Admitted  scholar  4  May  1727.  Resided  till 
Mich.  1731.  When  Tho.  Robinson  was  elected  Fellow  27  May  1731,  Every 
appealed  to  D'  Mawson,  V.C.,  who  on  August  10  rejected  the  appeal,  D''  Col- 
batch,  one  of  the  assessors,  dissenting  :  the  decision  (but  not  the  ground  of  the 
appeal)  is  given  in  the  Master's  Book  of  Statutes,  page  93.  Ordained  deacon, 
Lincoln,  173|,  and  licensed  to  assist  his  father  at  Navenby:  priest  1733  Dec.

his  father  purchased  the  advowson,  in  1741.  Succeeded  to  the  title  on  the 
death  of  his  brother  Sir  Henry  in  1755.  In  or  before  1756  he  sold  the 
advowson  of  Waddington  to  Lincoln  College.  Died  without  issue  1779,  when 
(all  his  brothers  being  dead)  the  title  passed  to  his  distant  cousin,  Edward. 
He  wrote  a  curious  letter  in  1753  to  announce  the  death  of  his  father.  Sir 
Simon,  the  rector  of  Navenby.  Apparently  he  regarded  D'  Rooke  (then 
Master)  as  specially  hostile  to  his  election.  He  concludes  his  letter  to  "its 
present  Head,  whose  inimitable  Behaviour  in  all  its  circumstances,  as  it  cannot 
easily  be  forgotten  so  is  most  heartily  forgiven  by  their  once  unworthy  member, 
John  Every."  A  copy  (still  preserved)  of  the  letter  is  endorsed  "  sent  to 
D'  Rooke,  Master  of  Christ  Coll.  a  fawning  hipocritical  Rascal  "  !

early  in  l745  he  volunteered  for  work  in  America.  On  2  April  1745  he 
received  the  £20  bounty  as  an  "emigrant  minister"  in  connexion  with  the 
S.P.G.  to  take  charge  of  the  churches  in  New  Jersey  :  possibly  he  revisited 
England  and  returned  to  America,  as  one  Tho.  Thompson  has  bounty  20  July 
1748  (Fothergill,  58,  59).  His  Fellowship  was  declared  vacant  21  Apr.  1746. 
He  applied  from  America  to  the  S.P.G.  to  be  appointed  by  them  the  (ap- 
pai-ently  first)  missionary  to  Africa.  "  Somebody  must  be  the  first  one,"  he 
said,  and  "  God  only  knows  how  long  it  may  be  before  any  other  person  will 
take  the  same  resolution."  He  was  appointed  15  Feb.  1751,  and  sailing  from 
New  York  reached  James  Fort  on  the  river  Gambia  9  Jan.  1752,  thence  to 
Cape  Coast  Castle  on  the  Gold  Coast,  where  he  worked  for  five  years  among 
Europeans  and  natives.  His  Account  of  two  missionary  voyages  was  published 
in  1758.  He  sent  home  three  native  boys  to  be  trained  by  the  S.P.G.  :  two 
were  baptised  7  Jan.  1759  at  St  Mary's  Islington  :  one  of  these,  Philip 
Quague,  son  of  a  native  chief,  returned  1766  and  worked  for  50  years  among 
the  natives  and  as  chaplain  to  the  English  residents.  In  1756  his  health 
gave  way  and  he  returned  to  England  :  apparently  he  was  poor,  for  he  received 
"by  consent  of  the  Fellows"  £10.   10.b\  Qd.     On  26  Aug.   1757   he  became 

:  vicar  of  Reculver,  Kent.  A  year  later  the  Dean  and  Chapter  of  Rochester 
presented  him  to  the  vicarage  of  Darenth  :  which  he  resigned  5  July  1759 
on  his  appointment  by  the  same  patrons  to  the  vicarage  of  Hoo  St  Werburgh, 
19  July.  In  November  1761  he  became  vicar  of  Elsham,  or  Elham,  and  held 
it  till  his  death  5  June  1773.  He  was  also  near  the  close  of  his  life  the 
author  of  The  A/rican  Trade  for  Negro  Shwes  shewn  to  be  C07isistent  with  the 
Principles  of  Humanity  and  with  the  Laws  of  Revealed  Religion,  1772:  in 
which  "  without  considering  the  subject  very  deeply,  he  draws  his  arguments 
fi'om  Aristotle  and  his  illustrations  from  the  Pentateucii."     (D.N.B.)

tenure  of  which  I  have  frequently  omitted) ;  and  he  took  no  pupils  :  apparently 
he  ceased  to  reside  after  Jan.  1731i-:  on  3  May  1738  he  resigned  his  Fellow- 
ship. He  married  a  daughter  of  Sir  Hen.  Goodrick  of  Ribstone — but  I  have 
not  found  the  date.  In  1744  became  vicar  of  Aldborough,  Yorks.,  which  he 
resigned  on  his  appointment  to  the  rectory  of  Stokesley  in  Cleveland  1750-91.

Thomas):  on  13  Aug.  1750,  dean  of  the  Collegiate  Church  of  Ripon— all 
which  appointments  he  held  till  his  death.  Despite  of  these  he  fell  into 
money  difficulties,  and  retired  for  a  time  to  the  Continent.  On  his  return  he 
found  the  deanery  occupied  by  a  residentiary  Canon,  who  declined  to  make 
way  for  him.  Accordingly  he  took  a  house  in  Kirkgate,  Ripon,  and  lived 
there  assisted  with  money  by  friends  :  and  there  he  died  9  July  1791,  his  life 
having  not  been  shortened  by  his  troubles.  (See  Canon  Raine,  "  Marske  "  in

as  henceforward  he  signs  irregularly.  On  12  July  1751,  on  the  death  of 
John  Boldero,  he  succeeded  to  the  rectory  of  Clipston  :  and  his  Fellowship 
was  declared  vacant,  as  he  had  been  instituted  "more  than  a  year,"  14  Nov. 
1752 — certainly  he  had  no  ground  for  complaint.  I  infer  that  while  a  Fellow 
he  had  not  congenial  company  in  the  Society  (which  was  prevailingly  Whig) 
while  he  was  probably  a  Tory,  if  he  be  the  "  Robin  "  whose  sufferings  are

described  in  the  Capitade  (1750)  under  the  rule  over  the  College  by  "  Gobrias  " 
(D'  Rooke). 

In  whose  dark  Realms  nor  Wit  nor  Learning  spread 
Nor  Merit  sprouts,  nor  Honour  rears  her  Head  : 
Where  midst  a  general  Pravity  of  Spirit 
Poor  Robin  only  suifers — for  his  Merit. 

(See  Wordsworth,  University  Life  in  the  \?>th  Century,  627.)  Hankinson 
may  have  been  happier  at  Clipston  where  he  lived  20  years — dying  before

remained  till  1761  :  this  was  the  last  presentation  made  by  the  Society,  as  in 
1762  the  advowson  of  Ringstead  was  exchanged  for  that  of  Brisley,  because  of 
the  contiguity  of  the  latter  to  Gateley  which  could  be  conveniently  held  with 
it.  The  golf  and  other  attractions  of  Hunstanton  (150  years  later)  could  not 
be  foreseen.

Wigley  and  M"'  Willey  to  the  Earl  of  Berkeley  that  he  might  select  one  in  the 
usual  way.  But  it  appears  from  a  memorandum  in  the  Order  Book,  that  this 
presentation  was  not  made,  as  "an  instrument  found  in  the  Treasury  "  declared 
that  the  College  might  present  absolutely  in  case  the  heir  of  Sir  Maurice 
Berkeley  was  then  absent  from  England  or  was  a  minor.  Accordingly  on 
27  Jan  1761  M''  Wigley  was  presented  by  the  College  to  Kegworth.  But 
during  his  year  of  Grace  (between  7  July  and  1  Sept.)  he  died  before  his

"  he  always  entered  in  the  register  the  name  of  the  father  of  an  illegitimate 
child  :  apparently  this  had  led  to  difficulties,  for  after  1757  he  leaves  a  blank 
space  for  the  name  or  fills  it  up  with  initials  :  in  one  case  he  has  drawn  a  fox- 
in  the  margin  :  as  Fox  is  a  common  name  in  this  neighbourhood,  his  meaning

*Comwallis,  Frederick :  seventh  son  of  Charles,  Baron  Cornwallis :  born  in

9  Feb.  173J.     Age  19. 

B.A.  173| ;  b.D.  1748.  Kept  "in  the  Master's  over  the  parler."  In  Dec. 
1735  he  appears  as  "  M''  Cornwallis."  Had  a  stroke  of  palsy  before  he  took  the 
B.A.  degree,  and  wrote  ever  after  with  his  left  hand.  Elected  Fellow  28  Jan. 
173i  :  by  all  the  eleven  Fellows  present  though  he  had  not  been  present  and 
examined:  see  Joh.  Peverell  (1731).  D'  Towers  refused  to  admit  him  on  the 
ground  that  being  a  peer's  son  he  was  not  eligible  under  the  statute  on  the 
qualit}^  of  Fellows.  Cornwallis  appealed  to  the  V.C.,  D''  Richardson,  who  on 
24  April  1738,  with  D"'  Hacket  and  D''  Conyers  Middleton  as  assessors,  required 
the  Master  to  admit  him — which  he  did  in  a  form  of  words  concocted  for 
the  occasion,  on  25  April.  Cole  considered  that  D''  Towers  behaved  very  badly 
because  Cornwallis  was  "one  of  the  most  amiable  men  I  have  ever  known  " 
(see  the  Master's  Book  of  Statutes,  p.  95) :  the  pleadings  are  in  the  "  Visitor's 
Drawer"  in  the  Treasury.  He  must  have  been  ordained  deacon  in  1739  at 
latest,  for  in  that  year  he  was  Praelector,  Junior  Dean  and  Catechist,  Bunting 
and  Walkhampton  Preacher,  and  Steward.  He  became  rector  of  Chelmondiston, 
Suff.,  while  still  deacon,  in  1740.  In  1742  Oct.  he  was  ordained  priest,  Norwich, 
and  was  instituted  (Oct.  4)  to  Tivetshall,  Norfolk.  He  held  no  office  after 
Oct.  1740  and  seems  to  have  resided  irregularly.  On  4  Nov.  1743  the  Master 
declared  his  Fellowship  vacant  :  and  so  at  last  got  rid  of  the  peer's  son. 
Cornwallis  had  rapid  preferment:  in  1746  he  became  Canon  of  Windsor: 
Prebendary  of  Lincoln  14  Jan.  174i  :  on  18  Jan.  174-;}  the  King  in  Council 
nominated  him  to  the  Bishopric  of  Lichfield  (consecrated  19  Feb.)  :  Dean  of 
St  Paul's  1766  :  elected  Archbishop  of  Canterbury  23  Aug.  1768,  enthroned 
6  October.    In  1 759  he  married  Caro  ine,  daughter  of  the  Hon.  Will.  Townsend  :

and  had  a  son  Will,  who  was  M.P.  for  Eye  {Gent.  Mag.  180i,  p.  1167):  Ri. 
Watson  {Anecdotes,  p.  70)  said  of  him  that  he  "  was  so  wife-ridden,  I  have  no 
opinion  of  his  politics."  The  chief  thing  recorded  of  his  tenure  of  office  (except 
the  repression  of  the  liberal  schemes  of  Porteus,  Bishop  of  London)  is  his 
abolition  of  the  custom  that  the  chaplains  should  dine  at  a  separate  table.  This 
suits  the  description  given  of  him  in  Hasted's  Canterbury,  2.  513,  that  "he 
was  not  deeply  learned  [he  published  a  few  sermons  between  1751  and  1762]  : 
had  a  purity  and  benevolence  of  heart  which  joined  to  the  affability  and 
courtesy  of  his  manners  gained  him  the  respect  and  love  of  everyone."  He 
died  19  Mar.  1783  after  a  few  days'  illness  and  was  buried  in  Lambeth  Church  : 
M.I.  (D.N.B.)  He  gave  to  the  College  a  handsome  gilt  cup  and  cover.  In 
1754  he  gave  £100  to  the  University  Library  Fund.  An  engraving  of  his 
portrait  by  Dance  is  in  the  Combination  Room.

rector  of  Aldborough,  Norfolk  1747  (Bloniefield,  4.  281).  He  was  certainly 
rector  of  Gunton,  a  neighbouring  parish  1774  on  the  presentation  of  Sir

and  Pirton  24  Nov.  1748,  which  he  held  till  his  death  :  but  I  think  that  he 
was  also  headmaster  of  Darlington  School  1750-5  (Carlisle,  1.  400) :  though 
he  sent  no  boys  thence  to  Christ's.  Had  dispensation  from  Lambeth  5  Oct. 
1754  to  hold  the  vicarage  of  Rickmansworth,  distant  25  miles  from  Ickleford: 
this  seems  to  have  brought  him  southward  again.  He  died  8  Jan.  1758.  On 
12  April  1758  an  order  was  made  to  pay  his  widow  ten  guineas  :  no  reason  is 
given.

228  CHRIST'S   COLLEGE 

Hutton,  Matthew :  son  of  Matthew,  armiger :  born  in  London.     School :  Bun- 
tingford.    Admitted  fellow-commoner  under  M''  Rooke  4  Jan.  173|.    Age  16. 
Probably  the    Matt.   Hutton  son  of  Matthew,  late  of  Newnham,   Herts. 
who  was  admitted  at  Lincoln's  Lni  25  Oct.  1732.     Resided  till  Mich.  1736. 

Strode,  William :  son  of  George :  born  at  Dyttishani,  Devon.  School :  Totnes. 
Admitted  fellow-commoner  under  M''  Rooke  4  April  1733.     Age  22. 

His  name  is  down  for  two  quarters,  till  Mich.  1733  but  without  any  charge : 
so  it  is  doubtful  whether  he  ever  resided  :  the  College  has  a  silver  coffee-pot 
either  gi\en  by  him,  or  purchased  out  of  his  "  Plate-Caution.  "  Probably  a 
member  of  the  family  of  Strode  of  Xewnham  Park,  Devon  :  but  I  cannot 
trace  him.  One  Lieut.-Gen.  William  Strode,  Colonel  of  G2nd  battalion  of 
foot,  died  at  Gerrard  Street,  Soho  1776  {Gent.  Mag.  p.  47). 

Verney,  Ralph :  second  son  of  [Ralpii]  Viscount  Fermanagh.  [No  more  facts.] 
Admitted  fellow-commoner  under  5l'  Law  20  April  1733.  Age  not  given: 
and  no  payment  mentioned.  M.A.  1736.  Resided  first  under  M'  Law,  then 
under  M''  Wigley  :  he  is  charged  for  rooms  during  eight  years  till  Mids''.  1741 : 
but  after  Dec.  1737  the  charge  sinks  from  £\  to  3s.  a  quarter:  and  perhaps 
meant  only  chance  residence.  Admitted  at  the  Middle  Temple  16  June  1729. 
Son  of  Ralph,  second  Viscount  Fermanagh  and  first  Earl  Verney  :  whom  he  suc- 
ceeded as  second  Earl  Verney  :  his  elder  brother  died  while  he  was  still  at 
Cambridge,  and  he  succeeded  his  father  in  1752.  M.P.  for  Wendover  1754 — 
the  seat  for  which  by  his  influence  Edmund  Burke  was  first  returned  to 
Parliament:  for  Carmarthen  1761  :  for  Bucks.  1768,  1775,  1780,  and  (after  a 
defeat  with  ruinous  e.xpense  in  1784)  again  in  1790  nine  months  before  his 
death.  His  expenditure  on  elections  was  equalled  b}'  his  e,x:penditure  on  his 
house  at  Claydon  where  in  a  simpler  but  most  magnificent  style  he  proposed 
to  rival  the  splendour  of  the  Temples'  house  at  Stowe.  Burke  thought  that 
his  services  to  the  Whig  party  were  insufficiently  rewarded,  and  gives  him  the 
character  of  an  exceptionally  "indulgent,  humane  and  moderate  landlord," 
and  a  "protector  to  all  the  poor  within  his  reach."  But  his  extravagance 
ruined  his  large  fortune  :  and  during  the  latter  years  of  his  life  he  lived  much 
at  Calais.  Soon  after  his  final  return  to  Parliament  in  1790,  the  bailiff's  were 
in  possession  of  Claydon,  and  the  furniture  was  seized  and  sold.  His  countess 
(Mary  Herring,  to  whom  he  was  married  for  50  years)  died  suddenly  20  Jan. 
1791 — and  two  months  later,  on  March  31,  he  died  at  his  house  in  Curzou 
Street,  aged  about  78.     (D.N.B.  :  Lipscombe,  Bucks.  1.  179.) 

Garratt,  Francis :  son  of  Thomas :  born  at  Uttoxeter.  School  :  Burtonon-

Age  20. 

Admitted  scholar  (Staffs.)  29  June  1734.  Resided  till  Xmas  1736:  then, 
apparently  migrated  to  Magdalene,  where  he  was  LL.B.  1739.  Probably 
curate  of  Navenby  1739-41.  Died  unmarried.  Will  proved  1772  (Hunter, 
F.M.G.  467). 

Alderson,  Edmund  :  son  of  James :  born  at  Halifax.  School :  Bradford,  under

Admitted  scholar  29  June  1734.  Elected  Fellow  (succeeding  Will.  Trant) 
9  Dec.  1741.  Ordained  deacon,  Lincoln,  1741  Dec:  priest  1741  March. 
Ciistos  cistae  1743.  Praelector,  Junior  Dean  and  Catechist,  Bunting  and 
Walkhampton  Preacher,  and  Steward  174.5.  Presented  by  John,  Earl  of 
Buckingham  12  July  174.5  to  the  rectory  of  Hardmead,  Bucks,  (which  he 
resigned  in  1750).  He  signs  last  in  the  Order  Book  25  Oct.  1746  and  early  in 
Jan.  174y  he  was  appointed  Master  of  Magdalene — though  only  31  and  there- 
fore ineligible  by  Statute — by  the  management  of  D''  Rooke,  says  Cole,  to 
whom  he  also  attributes  Chapman's  "  marriage  to  a  fortune "  and  King's 
chaplainship  :  his  Fellowship  was  declared  vacant  6  Feb.  174^  "his  }'ear  of 
grace  after  having  accepted  the  Mastership  having  expired  the  9th  of  last 
month."  Vice-Chancellor  174S-9 :  and  as  such  took  part  together  with 
D''  Edm.  Keene,  V.C.  1749-51,  in  the  preparation  of  the  very  drastic  regula- 
tions (passed  June  1750)  for  the  revival  of  discipline  in  the  University,  for 
which  the  wits  of  the  day  held  D''  Rooke  of  Christ's  ("George  Crow"  or 
"D'Rock"),  Chapman  ("Tom  Forward"),  Keene  ("Mun"  and  "Acutus") 
responsible  together  with  the  new  Chancellor,  Thomas  Pelham,  Duke  of 
Newcastle,  installed  1  July  1749  ("Tom  Standish,  a  sprightly  volative 
fellow") :  for  a  list  of  the  sufficiently  amusing  publications  on  the  subject  see 
Cooper,  Annals,  4.  280,  and  Wordsworth,  Univ.  Life,  617-32  :  the  University  is 
described  as  a  sick  old  lady,  and  the  Heads  as  her  sons,  of  whom  Tom  and 
Mun  are  specially  active  in  befooling  her  :  D''  Rock  is  charged  with  having 
given  her  very  injurious  pills  (the  regulations).  Like  Rooke  and  Keene 
Chapman  came  in  for  much  hard  hitting  in  these  pamphlets,  e.g.  "  Tom 
Forward  has  to  a  grain  the  same  quantity  of  truth  and  honour  as  his  brother. 
Sharp  [Keene]  :  but  in  other  respects  he  differs  much  from  him.  Tom  is  very 
pert  and  positive,  and  sometimes  very  rude  and  boisterous.  'Tis  for  this 
reason,  I  believe,  that  the  inhabitants  of  Bridgetown  have  nicknamed  him 
Bounce."  (See  Cole.)  Chapman  became  by  the  patronage  of  the  Crown 
rector  of  Kirkby-o\er-Blow,  Yorks.  8  Dec.  1749.  He  was  collated  to  the

but  he  died  9  June  1760,  aged  43.  La  1754  he  gave  £21  to  the  Univensity 
Library  Fund.  He  was  author  of  An  Essay  on  the  Roman  Senate,  1750.  He 
is  referred  to,  but  only  by  an  asterisk,  two  or  three  times  in  Gray's  woi'ks.

Murhall's  "  presentation  to  a  better  living  after  having  served  the  Churcli 
living  at  Caldecot  has  occasioned  some  disputes  between  the  Master  and 
Fellows."  The  dispute  (see  my  History  of  Christ's,  p.  256)  was  on  the  old 
question  whether  a  Fellow  should  be  presented  (as  he  legally  might  under 
certain  circumstances)  to  a  living  without  vacating  his  Fellowship.  See 
under  Joshua  Wigley  (p.  245)  who  desired  both.  Murhall  was  content  with 
Moulton. 

It  is  remarkable  that  out  of  a  year  of  only  eight  men,  five  should  be  elected 
to  Fellowships  :  viz.  Willey,  Dix,  Meachem,  Swainson  and  Murhall.
